Since the 1990s, information and communication technology (ICT) has been perceived as the critical technology for economic development, and the ICT industry itself has been growing exceptionally fast. Moreover, technology convergence in ICT has received particular attention. ICT innovations diffuse into existing products and thus come to form a new integral part of the goods. This is an exploratory research to examine technology convergence of the supply side as a firm level in the ICT sector using International Patent Classification (IPC) of 43,636 sample patents from 1995 to 2008. This study finds a degree of merger and relationships between different technology domains through the association rule mining of patent co-classification. This type of analysis helps companies to take strategies under the environment of technological trajectory change.

This book is a compilation of two recently completed works on the convergence of information and communication technology (ICT) (Singh and Raja 2008, 2009). Since then, convergence, the eroding of boundaries among previously separate ICT services, networks, and business practices, has accelerated and deepened. At the time these reports were written, convergence was already a reality and was picking up pace in low-income countries, as in the rest of the world. Now, as this introduction summarizes, broadband networks are reaching deeper into previously unserved areas. The growing number of people connected to broadband networks are consuming, sharing, and creating new multimedia content and applications. And they are doing this on handheld and portable devices that are less costly and do more than before. All sorts of users, governments, businesses, individuals, and ICT firms, are looking to cut costs while capturing greater value. Taken together, these trends indicate that convergence is set to accelerate even through the ongoing global economic downturn. Countries that enable convergence through appropriate policy and regulatory responses will realize significant benefits in terms of expanded access...

At the end of February 2011, the World Bank commissioned Balancing Act to assess the innovative Information and communication Technologies (ICT) applications already being used in the country, the impact of these applications, and provide recommendations on how these applications could be scaled up in the future. The study is part of a wider World Bank initiative to scale up the strategic application of information and communication technology in Africa. The study takes as its main assumption that ICT can provide a number of different ways that can help the social and economic growth of a country. However, it also looks at the interplay between things that ICT can make happen and the broader factors affecting Ghana. The structure of the report is as follows: 1) creating critical mass - the central argument; 2) the transition from infrastructure to services and applications; 3) the current state of ICT-enabled services and applications in Ghana; and 4) getting from here to there: actions needed to scale-up ICT services and apps. The methodology for this study has three parts to it: an examination of the African ICT roadmap; comparisons with Kenya and other countries; and the gathering of expert opinion both from the public and private sectors.

Die vorliegende Studie untersucht den Zusammenhang zwischen dem informationstechnologischen Fortschritt und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungsprozessen in Richtung einer Informations- und Wissensgesellschaft als ein Handlungsfeld steuerungspolitischer Maßnahmen. Sie bewegt sich im Feld politischer Steuerung in Forschung und Entwicklung und analysiert die Absichten verschiedener Projektförderer zur Errichtung von Steuerungsregimes beim IKT-Einsatz in der Bildung. Steuerungsregimes sind darauf gerichtet, Beziehungsnetzwerke zwischen staatlichen Akteuren, der Wissenschaft und der Wirtschaft zu etablieren, um die Transferleistung wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse und deren Umsetzung in Wirtschaftsgüter zu verbessern. Methodisch greift die Untersuchung auf den Ansatz der Kontextsteuerung Helmut Willkes zurück, der ein Konzept zur Konstituierung von Steuerungsregimes entworfen hat, das der Ableitung der Untersuchungsleitfragen zu Grunde gelegt wird. Die Entwicklung des Untersuchungsdesigns und der Untersuchungsmethoden, an denen sich die Studie ausrichtet, basiert auf den folgenden Untersuchungsleitfragen: 1. Handelt es sich bei der Vision von der Informations- und Wissensgesellschaft um ein Konzept, das die gesellschaftliche Entwicklung - basierend auf dem technologischen Fortschritt der IKT - adäquat beschreibt? 2. Inwiefern sind die Strukturen der Forschungsförderung von IKT im Bildungsbereich dazu geeignet...

The purpose of this mixed methods study was to document and examine the beliefs held by preservice elementary teachers prior to entering a teacher education program concerning the nature of mathematics and their perceptions about the effective use of information and communication technology (ICT) for mathematics instruction. Through an online questionnaire (N=132) followed by interviews of purposefully selected respondents (n=8), the following questions were addressed: (1) What beliefs do preservice elementary mathematics teachers hold upon entering teacher education programs regarding the nature of mathematics? (2) What beliefs do preservice elementary mathematics teachers hold upon entering teacher education programs about how ICT should be used in the classroom? and (3) How do preservice elementary mathematics teachers’ beliefs about the nature of mathematics relate to their views about the use of ICT in teaching mathematics? Video-elicitation was used in the interviews to determine how respondents perceived various uses of interactive whiteboards. Respondents were grouped based on their beliefs about the nature of mathematics and their reactions to the videos that they were shown. It was discovered that interview respondents who held contrasting views about the nature of mathematics also held differing beliefs about teaching and learning as well as the benefits of ICT. Respondents who saw mathematics as a set of fixed naturally occurring rules...

Despite the lack of substantial evidence for improvement in the quality of teaching and learning with information and communication technology (ICT), governmental organizations, including those of Canada and Australia, have made large investments into ICT. This investment has been largely predicated on the hypothesized relationship between ICT and science achievement, and the need for ICT as a means of providing broad-scale training to meet the demand for a skilled workforce. To better understand this possible relationship, this study used data from the 2006 administration of the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA 2006) to determine the extent to which scientific literacy is predicted by student- and school-level variables related to ICT, after adjusting for student demographic characteristics and school characteristics. The findings suggest that, once student demographic characteristics and school characteristics have been accounted for, students with prior experience with ICT, who browse the Internet more frequently, and who are confident with basic ICT tasks earned higher scientific literacy scores. Gender differences existed with respect to types of productivity and entertainment software used; this difference may be attributed to personal choice and initiative to learn ICT. Finally...

In this dissertation, I examine how the members of a distributed software development team (LC) operating entirely virtually for four and half years developed useful social practices to collaborate across time and space. Based on various communication data from LC, I analyze the communicative structuring of distributed work in members' daily practices. I show that "temporal flexibility," often mentioned as key advantage of virtual organizing, is socially accomplished through "boundary management," as members negotiate different temporal boundaries and learn and adapt to others' temporal patterns. Second, I identify dynamic coordination practices in LC that interweave multiple modes of communication and coordination in evolving work contexts, and demonstrate how these coordination practices facilitate temporal flexibility in LC. Finally, I analyze how members used the asynchronous communication medium of email to coordinate their tasks, using the notion of genre and genre system.; (cont.) My analysis suggests that communicating, coordinating, and temporal structuring are not distinctive activities, but are closely bound up with each other in a local practice; time, communication, and coordination are dynamically reconfigured over time...

The integration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and multimedia within History teaching and learning is an outcome of the curriculum of the National Education Department of South Africa. History lessons for the classroom situation can become more active and learner-centred, slowing the widening gap between South Africa and the developed world with respect to ICT integration and the use of multimedia resources in History teaching and learning at schools. The purpose of this article is to show teachers where to locate sources and resource materials that can be used in History lessons, inform teachers on some of the History-related features of each website, and expose teachers to the use of new teaching strategies aided by the Internet. High-tech TLSM possibilities can promote greater integration of ICT and multimedia into History lessons to improve a broader understanding of content and enhance quality teaching.
