The main objective of the Survey is to create a consolidated source of information on the experiences of using ICTs for Education in the South Asian region, as a baseline for future work, and to provide a framework of reference for policy-makers.
The Survey consists of two sections. The first section provides a snapshot of each country in the South Asian region - Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. This includes – (i) a broad background of the legal framework governing education and ICT in the country; (ii) an overview of the education and ICT scenario; (iii) relevant policy frameworks prevalent in the country and (iv) key insights gathered through the survey. The second section is a cross-country analysis of ICT in the education space, beginning with a comparative analysis of the key on-ground initiatives in the focus countries. This is followed by a discussion on common insights and constraints faced by the focus countries.
