Technology improves learning by enabling access to information and content experts, facilitating collaboration, encouraging creation, and improving communication. Students develop these skills while gaining experience with the same modern technology that they'll use in the business world-and increasingly, in their personal lives. Technology integration cannot be seen in isolation. The integration of technology has the potential to solve certain challenges with regards to equal access to information and at the same time unlocks other challenges which might not initially be as obvious to the average technology user. Intel Education and ACEIE collaboration aims to highlight these challenges and enable dialogue and awareness with regards to issues such as inclusive Education, Connecting woman and girls to the web and Internet safety.
