AIRictimpact.orgThe American Institutes for Research (AIR) is conducting a comprehensive analysis of reliable research undertaken to date on the deployment of low-cost ICT to support education goals around the world with an emphasis on the developing world. The purpose of the study is to increase understanding of the impact of ICT on educational outcomes in children and adults and, ultimately, to generate an innovative research agenda to address salient issues. We are seeking rigorous research that has been conducted to determine issues such as impact, efficacy, return on investment, and total cost of ownership.

Please submit ictimpact.orgresearch by July 30, 2008. AIR will review and analyze reports that are submitted and post an initial working document here for community comment, critique, and conversation. Comments and the latest iteration will later be pulled down and refined for academic review and distribution.
