ICTs in Education

What we do

We support the development of initiatives to incorporate information and communication technologies (ICTs) in educational processes, in order to improve the quality of student learning in Latin America and the Caribbean.


Provide knowledge and experience to the development of comprehensive policies to improve access to ICTs and their use in education as a complement to the design, implementation and evaluation process.

Why ICTs in education

Innovation in education is currently one of the Bank’s priorities and ICTs are key in increasingly advanced globalization and education promotion processes that portray 21st century society. These technologies have the potential to support the development of improved learning and are key to close the gaps while integrating diversity and providing access to information and knowledge.

By The Numbers



The IDB estimates that by 2015 30 million students will have access to personal mobile devices to support their learning.
