Reversing the flow from the developing to the developed world: mobile learning lessons

Posting this here, but it originally appeared on the Panoply Digital website.

The ICT4D field is proving mature enough in some instances to reverse the flow of informal technology transfer from developed to developing, so much so that it is forcing, at least in my mind, a reconsideration of the term developed and developing. The suggestion that any nation, at any point, has completed a process of development is absurd and antithetical to how Panoply Digital operates. We all have something to learn from everyone else and, more specifically, projects and technologies advanced in one region can benefit those elsewhere. So rather than use this post as a sounding board for redefining terminology (the developed vs. developing dichotomy), I prefer to use it as a means of demonstrating that the learning opportunities posed by ICT4D should ripple and often do throughout the developing world.
