The goal of this Green Paper is to examine a wide variety of issues in applying information and communications technologies to education, through the lens of the Brazilian experience. Such issues include teacher training, intellectual property rights, content price, access privileges, access to taxpayer-funded educational resources and technical standards.

Education policy and projects that combine infrastructure investment with a coherent “network” approach to content are the most likely to have significant positive impact, and to realize the goal of a more inclusive education capable of inserting the learner in the Information Society.

The paper was prepared in the context of the "Brazilian Project on Open Educational Resources: Challenges and Perspectives," which is funded by the Open Society Institute.
