About Us

The developmental growth of ICT in the Asia Pacific countries has been phenomenal in recent years as the Government of these countries have embarked on various ICT initiatives. Despite these efforts, the ICT development rate of each country has not been the same among countries from the low-income, lower-middle-income and upper-middle-income economies within the Asia Pacific region (hitherto referred to as underrepresented countries). In general, the ICT growth in these countries is only at the emerging or development stage. In response to the emerging research diversity, the SIG on Development of Information and Communication Technology in the Asia Pacific Neighbourhood (DICTAP) has been established to be a community of researchers, developers, and practitioners in order to share the design, development, and implementation of information and communication technology in education.
