The Global e-Schools and Communities Initiative (GeSCI) developed a conceptual framework for an African Leaders in ICT (ALICT) capacity building program. It focuses on understanding what a knowledge society is and exploring its relationship to ICT, education, and development. It highlights trends and some of the challenges in implementing ICT in education initiatives in Africa. Finally, some tentative recommendations on key issues are presented. The country-specific efforts, including policies, offer important insights.
