Metasurvey Project Output

Results of the Metasurvey published and disseminated
The Metasurvey has painted a broad picture of the programmes and initiatives in the Asia-Pacific region that utilize ICT in education. This is the first survey on ICT in Education that covers an entire region and the survey covers countries as diverse as Afghanistan and Australia, Thailand and Vanuatu.

The Metasurvey publication is made up of reports by independent experts in the 44 UNESCO Member States in the Asia-Pacific region. These reports analyze how far these countries have progressed in formulating ICT in Education policies, and to what extent they have developed national infrastructure for utilizing ICT in education.

The reports describe innovative examples of the integration of ICT into school systems; as well as local, national and regional initiatives which utilize ICT for non-formal education. The reports also discuss the obstacles to  access to ICT.

The first version of the Metasurvey was presented and distributed at the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in December 2003 and was later disseminated to researchers, governments and institutions in the Asia-Pacific region, and also to selected institutions worldwide.

Inventory of Educational Software

An inventory was undertaken of educational software currently being used in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly in Australia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand.

The focus was put on the evaluation of the best educational software used in secondary schools for mathematics, science, and language teaching and learning. This inventory was therefore useful in the implementation of the UNESCO SchoolNet project.

The searchable database is accessible on a CD-ROM and online.
