Problem

Development is slow in rural areas due to a lack of knowledge and use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). ICT is evolving at a rapid pace, but it is less applicable in rural areas. Government public schools face challenges such as a lack of computers, ICT access, trained teachers, and appropriate arrangements to integrate computer classes for students.
