Abstract

This paper focuses on the utilization of ICT in education for sustainable development. The paper succinctly examines the importance of ICTs in education, education for sustainable development ESD and the current uses of ICTs in education for sustainable development. Three pertinent questions were also raised and the answers were provided in this paper. These are; why do ICTs need to be considered as a critical tool in education for sustainable development (ESD)? What ICTs are currently being used by educators and learners? And what can we expect to see in the near future? The key challenges in integrating ICTs in Education were also discussed. It was however concluded that ICTs have great potential for knowledge dissemination, effective learning and the development of more efficient education services. ICT will not only sustain education development but also the global energy, environmental and social challenges. It was recommended among others that private and public sector partnerships should be encouraged to fast track ICT-based projects in education for sustainable development
