This short country report, a result of larger Information for Development Program (infoDev)-supported survey of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in education in Africa, provides a general overview of current activities and issues related to ICT use in education in the country. Developing the education system in Burkina Faso will involve equipping more people with a basic quality education and guaranteeing development in the post-primary education sector. Through these two main initiatives, Burkina Faso will strengthen its workforce and add to the number of skilled workers, professionals, and other contributors to its culture, economy, and status. Disparities in access based on location, gender, and age, in addition to the lack of rural communication structures, are Burkina's major constraints to universalizing ICT use. However, with a plan to develop ICT infrastructure in Burkina Faso, and an increasing demand for modern technologies and information, the education sector is welcoming progress toward the integration of ICT into its school systems, with the help of various partnerships from public and private organizations.
