2011 (English)In: 2011 International Conference on Advances in ICT for Emerging Regions (ICTer), IEEE Computer Society Digital Library, 2011, 71-76 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This reflective paper sheds light on the Kenyan Government’s Digital Villages Project. The project strives to decrease the disparities between urban and rural environments across the country using information and communications technologies. The structure of the project is inspired by the Capability Maturity Model. This paper proposes the use of behavioural archaeology instead. The use of behavioural archaeology enables important aspects and results of the project to be illuminated and captured. In addition a specific focus is placed upon the political implications of the project and their effect on rural Kenya.
