Information and communication technologies (ICTs)--especially the Internet and the mobile phone--have changed the lives of people all over the world. These changes affect not just the affluent populations of income-rich countries but also disadvantaged people in both global North and South, who may use free Internet access in telecenters and public libraries, chat in cybercafes with distant family members, and receive information by text message or email on their mobile phones. Drawing on Amartya Sen's capabilities approach to development--which shifts the focus from economic growth to a more holistic, freedom-based idea of human development--Dorothea Kleine in Technologies of Choice? examines the relationship between ICTs, choice, and development. Kleine proposes a conceptual framework, the Choice Framework, that can be used to analyze the role of technologies in development processes. She applies the Choice Framework to a case study of microentrepreneurs in a rural community in Chile. Kleine combines ethnographic research at the local level with interviews with national policy makers, to contrast the high ambitions of Chile's pioneering ICT policies with the country's complex social and economic realities. She examines three key policies of Chile's groundbreaking Agenda Digital: public access, digital literacy, and an online procurement system. The policy lesson we can learn from Chile's experience, Kleine concludes, is the necessity of measuring ICT policies against a people-centered understanding of development that has individual and collective choice at its heart.

Man's activities have become more knowledge driven - using emerging Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) such as computers, internet, digital equipment, mobile phones, chat engines and many other digital and multimedia communication technologies as the driving force in this direction. In a practical illustration, Molosi (2001) observed that the internet used only four years to reach fifty million users, while Television took thirteen years to attain the same number of viewers. This goes to illustrate the speed at which technology is advancing. This trend has brought to the fore the need for integration of ICT in the education. Ghana in her 2007 New Education Reform (NER) made ICT a subject to be taught in school for the first time and became examinable in Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE). The success of the study of ICT in schools is linked the ability of Educational Administrators and Supervisors offer the technology based leadership. Consequently, supports Supervisors and Educational Administrators need to be equip with some level of ICT stills in order undertake any effective monitoring,. In effect, , if Educational administrators or supervisors lack the basic knowledge on ICTs or computers they may not be effective in accomplishing their duties. In the light of the above, it has become expedient for the Educational Administrators and Circuit Supervisors at the Metro Education Office, Takoradi in Ghana to be equipped with skills in the use Computers and their associated basic applica
