Setting the Context: Educational Challenges in Northeastern Nigeria



In this chapter, we shall describe the nature of some of the educational challenges we faced in Northeastern Nigeria, and the social and educational measures taken to respond to those challenges. These set the stage for our increasingly sophisticated and increasingly successful use of technology for instructional purposes, culminating in our Technology Enhanced Learning for All (TELA) program.
