In many parts of the world there has been a substantial growth in the use of media and technologies for educational purposes (both formal and informal) over the last 15-20 years. However, there seems to be little likelihood of the educational systems in developing countries adopting technologies to support learning and teaching in the same way that their western counterparts have done.
