Closing the Digital Gap in Cameroonian Secondary Schools through the CIAC Project
Nganji,, Julius; Kwemain, Roland; Taku, Calisus
International Journal of Education and Development using Information and Communication Technology, v6 n2 p106-114 2010
Although with the overwhelming impact of new technologies globally, numerous factors still account for the setbacks in bridging the digital divide in developing nations. Cameroon has for several years been trailing in the employment of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) to facilitate learning and teaching in schools. Nevertheless, a number of ICT projects have been implemented in secondary schools which have helped to reduce this digital gap amongst students. We report on one of the pioneer projects, the Computer and Internet Access Centres (CIAC) project, implemented by the Association for Development, Communication and Environment (ADCOME), a non-governmental organisation with headquarters in the South West Region of Cameroon. We begin by looking at its history, implementation, successes, challenges and possible solutions.
