HOVE, P.  and  GROBBELAAR, S.S.. Innovation for inclusive development: mapping and auditing the use of ICTs in the South African primary education system. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2020, vol.31, n.1, pp.47-64. ISSN 2224-7890.

Inclusive education aims to identify and minimise barriers to learning and maximise learner participation in the education system. With a focus on the use of information and communication technologies in the South African primary education system, this study aims 1) to create a framework with which to evaluate the current state of ICT uptake across core functions for a school; 2) to audit the current state of innovation uptake; 3) to use the audit outcomes to identify challenges to the uptake of ICTs; and 4) to identify measures for facilitating an improved uptake of these innovations. The researchers conclude that a need exists for government to ensure consistent ICT uptake and use throughout the education system through a better implementation of standards, policies, and processes that facilitate technology uptake.
