Abstract

Despite the potential of digital technologies to contribute to the enhancement of access to quality education and the development of lifelong learning competencies, many knowledge
gaps remain in how, for whom and in what contexts digital technologies actually do contribute
to improved, equitable educational outcomes. More research is needed that creates and
tests ‘proven models’ of digital learning in Asian schools and deepens our understanding of the
conditions that are necessary and sufficient for success. And this research needs to build on the
research that has already been done in the region and worldwide. The primary aim of this book
section is to provide snapshots of the current state in research and to identify and explain the
research gaps and future directions of digital learning for development in Asian schools.

Abstract

Education – that is, the development of knowledge, skills, and values – is an important means by which to empower individuals in a society. As both a means towards and an outcome of
gaining the capabilities necessary to participate in and contribute to society, education is an
essential enabler in many social aspects, such as economic growth, poverty reduction, public
health, and sustainable development, especially in today’s knowledge society. At the same
time, however, education can still be a social institution that reflects and reproduces the social,
cultural, and economic disadvantages that prevail in the rest of society (Bourdieu & Passeron,
1990). For example, students who are discriminated against socio-culturally
or who are economically
poor are more likely to receive an education that is characterized by inadequate infrastructure,
few qualified teachers and encouraging peers, and outmoded pedagogical practices,
which often results in a lower quality of life.
