The Global Networked Readiness in Education Survey

Researched and written by Berkman fellows, Colin
Maclay and Geoffrey Kirkman, the Global Networked
Readiness in Education survey seeks to aid school
leaders and policymakers by helping them to examine
the role and effects of integrating information and
communication technologies (ICTs) into formal
learning. While educators and policymakers have
invested tremendous resources into preparing students
for a globalizing and technology-savvy world, they've
often done so with limited understanding of the
characteristics and impact of ICTs in education,
resulting in problems with planning, implementation
and measurement, and ultimately a techno-centric
approach to integrating ICT in learning.

The survey includes results from over 5000 surveys of
students, teachers, computer lab administrators and
heads of school in schools in Brazil, Costa Rica, El
Salvador, the Gambia, India (Karnataka), Jordan,
Mexico, Panama, the Philippines, South Africa, and
Uganda. And the findings of their research? Check out
