5 Cross-Cutting Issues

In the twenty-first century, the Internet has become a pervasive social, economic and cultural institution. Its influence is felt in every sphere of public and private life -- including education. Because the Internet itself does not exist in isolation, initiatives to extend connectivity to schools are also affected by several cross-cutting issues, including: (1) content and curricula for schools, (2) teacher training, (3) assistive technologies and accessible ICTs for persons with disabilities, (4) the availability of low-cost computing devices including mobile phones, (5) online child protection and responsible behaviour, and (6) awareness and capacity-building within the targeted populations.
