Tech for Good was developed by UNESCO and Cetic.br/NIC.br, the Brazilian Network Information Center’s Regional Center for Studies on the Development of the Information Society. It brings together thought leaders and changemakers in the fields of information and communication technologies (ICT) and sustainable development to show how digital technologies are empowering billions of people around the world by providing access to education, healthcare, banking, and government services; and how “big data” is being used to inform smarter, evidence-based policies to improve people’s lives in fundamental ways.

It also addresses the new challenges that technology can introduce, such as privacy, data management, risks to cybersecurity, e-waste, and the widening of social divides. Ultimately, Tech for Good looks at the ways in which stakeholders are coming together to answer big questions about what our future will look like in a hyper-digitized world.

This course is for:

-Technology specialists who want to understand more about how ICT is being used to improve people’s lives around the world.
-Sustainable development practitioners who need to understand the opportunities and limitations of technology in a development context.
-Advanced undergraduates and graduate students interested in the key concepts and practices of this exciting and ever-changing field.

What You Will Learn:
-ICT can improve access to knowledge and services, promote transparency, and encourage collaboration
-Responsible collection and use of data requires governance, security, and trust
-ICT projects should be contextualized and inclusive
-Technology is not neutral! Be aware of bias in design and implementation
