Abstract

In recent years the efforts Latin American countries have made in educational policies account for significant achievements, especially in regards to educational inclusion. It is possible, however, to identify the persistence of gaps such as the unequal access to knowledge related to the academic processes and results accomplished by boys, girls and youth throughout their educational trajectories. This article discusses the potential and challenges of ICT integration policies for addressing this problem. It does so in an articulate manner as the use of this potential requires guaranteeing a minimum set of conditions, and the building of possible and desirable conditions. Among these, the pending issues of connectivity and the question of change in educational practice are developed.
