This Meta-survey on the Use of Technologies in Education in Asia and the Pacific is the first such survey to map the use of ICTs in the education systems of an entire region. The project, conducted by UNESCO with the support of Japanese Funds-in-Trust, gathers information on 44 UNESCO Member States, and provides an up-to-date overview of the state of ICT use in primary and secondary, non-formal, technical and vocational education across Asia and the Pacific. With a special focus on using ICTs to achieve Education for All goals, the report also includes a chapter discussing issues relating to ICT use and gender equality, which identifies areas for further efforts to ensure girls and women are not excluded from the educational benefits that ICTs are seen to offer.
