Abstract: There are currently many attempts being undertaken to introduce microcomputers into schools in developing countries. But little empirical evidence is yet available on their effectiveness. This paper reports on the progress made on a project on the introduction of microcomputers into schools in India, and compares the Indian experience with similar projects in Argentina, Mexico and Senegal. The article also looks at the prospects for computer literacy in developing countries, and on the career opportunities open to computer-literate students.
