The national ICT programme for education is focused on assisting primary and secondary education in Bolivia by providing digital educational content through the education portal www.educabolivia.bo and enhancing access to ICT for teaching and learning. This is done by setting up of 1,000 education community telecentres and a portal providing educational materials for primary and secondary schools in all nine departments of Bolivia reaching more than 100,000 parents, teachers and students.
The programme addresses access and quality of primary and secondary education. ICT is expected to increase access to on-line education materials and to promote the development of local content . The government considers the programme as a chance to combine advanced ICT with recuperating local indigenous knowledge. Furthermore, the programme enhances capacities of teachers and prepares students for their professional future.
