5 What have we learned?

As we have seen throughout this module, the use of ICTs for the development of Indigenous peoples and isolated communities goes way beyond the supply of connectivity to a school. Connectivity is just a link in a long chain of actions required for the ICTs to be used for the benefit of the communities. In this task, the government and the communities have mutual responsibilities that need to be fulfilled so that the ICTs are truly a tool that contributes to development.
