Thailand's race to ICT literacy
A decade since Asia’s 10th most populous country launched its first ICT Master Plan, the Ministry of Education has successfully improved the computer-student ratio to 1:20 on average.
“The past five years have been focused on setting up the basic IT infrastructure in schools,” Keartisak Sensai (pictured), Senior Advisor (ICT for Education), MOE, said to FutureGov Asia Pacific magazine. “Some of our schools are already running one-to-one computing programmes.”
These are hopeful statistics for those hoping to meet the goals stated in the nation’s current ICT Master Plan.
The Thai MOE is also nursing a keen interest in tablets like Apple’s iPads, believing that these devices can aid learning. “The growing popularity of tablets like the iPad is an area of interest for us. These devices would be great for learning because they are intuitive and easy to use.”

Thailand (ICT) Master Plan for 2009-2013 ... UNESCO Review
A “Smarter Thailand” with “Smarter People” and a “Smarter Government”- is the main goal of Thailand's second Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Master Plan for 2009-2013, which was drafted by the National Electronic and Computer Technology Centre (Nectec).
The plan aims to increase Thailand's ICT readiness to enable the country to become a major competitor in the global market.
One of the objectives is to encourage 50 per cent of the population above 15 years old to be ICT-literate and able to use computers in all areas of their lives.
Human resource development and capacity building will be a major strategy for meeting this target.
ICT was first introduced to the Thai school system in 1984 when computer courses were included in the mathematics syllabus.
