infoDev maintains a series of informal briefing sheets related to research and project work that has been done -- and is being done -- by a number of prominent international donor agencies and research institutions related to ICT use in education in developing countries.
These briefing sheets are updated regularly based on publicly-available information, and should not be considered to be endorsed by the subject organizations. Briefing sheets for additional organizations are under preparation, and will be published as they are completed.
