Abstract

In 2009, the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport released the Master Plan for Information and Communication Technology in Education. This Master Plan was intended to inform policy and projects at the national level and will ideally improve technology use across the education system. This chapter gives an insiders' perspective on this policy and how it has impacted local schools. Two authors are Cambodian researchers who were working at the Royal University of Phnom Penh while the other two have worked on various technology initiatives in the country. In late 2011, the researchers conducted a technology infrastructure readiness assessment in a sample of three upper secondary schools around the country to determine the actual state of technology. They also conducted focus group interviews with students and teachers in these schools. These data, along with current economic, educational, and technological data, will be used to frame our analysis of this plan. The chapter concludes with suggestions to the Cambodian Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport on moving forward.
