When used effectively, technology can have significant positive impacts on learners, teachers, and those managing education at local, regional, and national levels. However, we recognise that technology is not a panacea for all 21st-century education. We believe that, whether low- or hi-tech, EdTech should be used when it presents the best-value solution.
Technology in education should play an add-on role rather than being a core requirement in providing literacy and numeracy skills. The reason for that is that often is seen as a goal instead of as a tool. The goal is to have improve literacy and numeracy, better professional development for the teachers, and improve their conditions while teaching. In short guarantee a better environment for all to enhance teaching and learning. Technology is one effective way of doing it, but we must bear in mind that access to it is not universalised.
