Huawei & CSR Asia Launch White Paper on Education

Share

Huawei Technologies and CSR Asia have launched a white paper on current use and potential for Information Communication Technology (ICT) in education across China and ASEAN. “The Role of ICT in Realising Education for all by 2030 – Achieving Sustainable Development Goal Four” is the title of the paper. It focuses on the role that technology can play in helping achieve United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number four (SDG4), which prioritises equitable access to quality education for all ages and aims to fill gaps in education systems worldwide.

The paper explores the current reality of education in the region and the ways in which ICT could help drive positive change in access and quality. In a region with significant economic and social diversity, the greatest leveller, social unifier, and driver of sustainable development in all countries is education. Used strategically, ICT can dramatically enhance education equity, quality and efficiency through its ability to facilitate fast, synergetic and scalable change. However, compared with most developed nations, the region has yet to take full advantage of this opportunity.
