Analyses two interconnected approaches to using ICT to support adult literacy and basic education. The first views ICT primarily as a set of instructional tools to help people acquire the skills associated with traditional notions of literacy. The second treats the relationship between literacy, technology and development in a more integral way. The authors also consider the implications and options for policy makers in the use – and necessity – of expanded roles for new technologies in literacy development.
