Abstract

This descriptive study seeks to understand the status of the digital divide among public school students, explore the possibilities of integrating digital storytelling in order to improve bi-literacy instruction and find out if technology education could be a sustainable process of empowerment among public school students in rural Bhutan. Presenting several broad themes relevant to technological innovation, integration of technology into educational practices, and social structures in underdeveloped and developing countries, this study has important implications for future development of educational technology in rural schools in Bhutan.
