Technology has improved communication: Communication is used for a number of purposes. Both society and organizations depend on communication to transfer information. People use technology to communicate with each other. People need well and organized educational infrastructures so that they can learn how to interpret information. Technologies like smart whiteboards, computers, mobile phones, iPads, projectors, and internet are being used in classrooms to boost students moral to learn.

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) can impact student learning when teachers are digitally literate and understand how to integrate it into curriculum. Schools use a diverse set of ICT tools to communicate, create, disseminate, store, and manage information.

Information and communication technologies encompass all those technologies that enable the handling of information and facilitate different forms of communications among human actors, between human beings and electronic systems, and among electronic systems. These technologies can be sub-divided into capturing, storage, processing, communications and display technologies.

Information and communications technology (ICT) is an extensional term for information technology (IT) that stresses the role of unified communications and the integration of telecommunications (telephone lines and wireless signals) and computers, a.

Since early 90s Information and Communication Technologies are playing a pivotal role in the development process. In the globalization era, India using ICTs to promote their development programs as well as reaches the poor to strengthen their lively hood. In this paper how the ICT using in eradication of poverty as well as the e governance performance has been discussed.

This study offers a new perspective to analyze the interface between information and communication . Based on the theoretical framework, the paper analyzes the interface between ICT and corporate governance, and the barriers to adopting ICT by relation-based LDCs.

This study offers a new perspective to analyze the interface between information and communication technology (ICT) and corporate governance and how the interfa. We argue that economic and legal system-specific governance effects is more fundamental than national cultural effects on ICT adoption, and that barriers to adopting ICT are greater for the LDCs that rely predominantly on relation-based governance.

Despite the plethora of discussions on the potentials of information and communication technologies (ICTs) for development, efforts to bridge the so-called digital divide have suffered from the lack of convincing evidences of the positive impact of the new technologies, especially on rural areas and households. The present study aims at identifying and measuring the positive impact of ICTs on rural households through a holistic approach integrating national, project and target group level analyses. With a case of the Rural Telecommunications Project in Lao PDR, the impact of telephone, the most basic ICT, was investigated at three different levels. The project level analysis reveals that the Rurtel service is efficient and sustainable, and has benefits for rural residents comparable to other infrastructures. The target group level analysis applied propensity score matching and regression analysis, and the results confirm the positive and pro-poor impact of telephone use on household welfare. Despite these contributions, investment in telecommunications has not been substantial. The government should commit itself to expanding the network to rural areas by setting up universal access of telephone service, which seem to be an appropriate technology for rural population considering the current conditions for ICT deployment.
