The goal of this fourth international workshop is to bring together researchers, and educators to discuss various
issues involved in developing new techniques and on novel uses of technology for education in developing countries. 

In developing countries, conditions, constraints, and resources differ sharply with industrialized nations,
creating special challenges for the technical and educational research communities. 

We seek high quality submissions of original unpublished research on all aspects of technology for education in
developing countries. Researchers and educators with new perspectives on applications of technology in this context
are strongly encouraged to submit their work. 

The main topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

Applications and systems: multimedia applications, adaptive learning environments, open source tools for teaching
           and learning, databases, data warehousing and data mining for (mass) education, portals, web tools,
           asynchronous applications, distributed education 
Novel technologies: alternative (low-cost, low-energy) technologies, wireless and mobile learning platforms,
           information retrieval for slow/unreliable connections, hand-on and hands-in technologies 
Learning settings: special education, non-formal education, vocational training and continuous education,
           literacy applications, ICT education, distance learning 
Impact of technology: project deployments, cultural issues in educational development, minority language
           requirements, cross-language interfaces, human-computer interfaces, cultural usability 
Resource sharing: collaborative learning in local environments, human-computer interfaces for resource sharing,
           teaching resource management, grid computing infrastructures 
Evaluation and policy issues: gender issues, universal access, technology as a tool for fighting poverty,
           cost-benefit analyses, sustainable educational technology, license issues of open source courseware
