ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: Most developing countries similar to Kenya are striving to empower their citizens with education with an attempt to realize development goals. Education has been pointed out as the single most fundamental pillar in driving development agenda. However this may not be possible because unless quality and equitable education is offered. Quality education must be able to meet the diverse needs of learners such as cultural way of life (e.g. pastoralist and nomadic), poverty levels among others. How would a poor child living in the remote Kenya whose parents survive entirely pastoralist and formalism as a way of life be able to get an equitable and quality education? The study argues that ICT has the outstanding contribution in answering this question. Specifically, the paper illustrates the need for ICT adoption to bridge the education gap between rural and urban setting. This focuses on bridging a digital divide, developing digital contents and adopting cloud computing. Moreover, this paper also highlights the need to incorporate e-gender in such a framework to meet the robust needs of the society.
