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. The three articles in this themed section provide accounts of a variety of ways in which technology is enhancing education in technology-poor contexts.
