Abstract

Advancement in the technology and techniques of effective transmission of information over space and time has engendered a marked improvement in the wellbeing of humans. The Internet, Computers and Telephony (both mobile and fixed) have been major drivers of this advancement. Can educating a Nation’s populace adequately to become proficient and skillful in exploiting the ICTs for personal and subsequently national goals enhance that economy’s preparedness for Knowledge Economy? This is the question this paper seeks to address by investigating the relationship between ICT education (ICTed), ICT Development Index (IDI), Knowledge Economy (KE) and Knowledge Economy Index (KEI) in general and particularly for African Nations. KEI and IDI data provided by the World Bank Institute and International Telecommunications Union are employed in the statistical analysis.
