Abstract

In 2012, poor students in rural Colombia were learning at levels far below their rich peers (Bos et al. 2014). Colombia needed to close the large learning gap across socioeconomic groups and regions to ensure that all students had a fair chance to realize their dreams. With the realization that limited and poor-quality educational resources were hampering learning in the most disadvantaged schools, the Colombian government sought to harness the power of information and communication technology (ICT) to provide quality education to every corner of the country.

In 2012, the Colombian Ministry of National Education partnered with the Republic of Korea to launch the Building ICT in Education Capacity in Colombia project. Through this partnership, the education ministry began to train content developers, administrators, and teachers across the nation to produce, manage, and use digital educational content. The idea was that if more teachers had access to a range of digital educational content—and the skills to use them in classes—students across the country would receive a better education.
