Take a look at John Daly‘s article Volunteers, Information and Communication Technologies, and Development on Development Gateway. It’s right.
One useful thing and a remark.
The useful thing is, in fact, two useful sites appearing there and recently included in my links list:
- Association for Progressive Communications, with a good capacity building selection of on-line materials
- Itrain Online, with good resources on Internet knowledge.
The remark is: ICT volunteering or e-volunteering?
Ok, I know it’s not the same. But I think e-volunteering should be taken in more consideration, as it is ICT volunteering but not in the contents point of view but in the instruments, as Literature deals with the things I say and the way I write them.
In fact, experience shows more and more than e-volunteers do teach other content and ICT by learning/teaching by doing, which is a plus. I agree with specific capacity building in the field of ICT, but let’s not forget that ICT training per se is not the issue.
If you need to cite this article in a formal way (i.e. for bibliographical purposes) I dare suggest:
