ICT in Education Strategy and Implementation Plan for Education in Papua
This framework is used throughout this document as a structure for considering needs, current initiatives and gaps in those initiatives, proposed interventions, and implementation approaches over a five-year period. The strategy also takes account of Papua’s geography because geography directly affects the access to Internet connectivity and other accessibility factors.
