A Response to "A Pedagogical and Economic Critique of Student Charges for Internet Access"
Moll, Pippa
International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v1 n2 p125-129 2005
This paper is a practitioner response by an IT manager to a paper by Duncan Greaves entitled "A pedagogical and economic critique of student charges for Internet access", which appears in the same issue of "IJEDICT." Greaves' article proposes four mechanisms to solve this "public goods problem". The author explores the challenges of Internet service provision in a no-charging low bandwidth environment and specifically considers the implications of Greaves' recommendations to solve this problem: right-sizing the bandwidth; having appropriate policy frameworks; capitalising on community mores and sensibility; and using technology smartly.
