Abstract


This paper was originally written as a term paper for a master’s-level course on information technologies and socio-economic development at the London School of Economics. It seeks to serve as a very brief and broad introduction to two primary topics – 1) ICTD (ICT for development) theory and 2) grassroots technologies used to expand and improve ICT ecosystems – regarding the rural digital divide. It was presented at the IFIP 9.4 IT4D/STS Workshop: South-North-South Dialogues on Science, Technology, and Development at the Federal University of Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte, Brazil on August 19, 2014.
