The WSIS outputs on capacity building emphasized that "each person should have the opportunity to acquire the necessary skills and knowledge in order to understand, participate actively in, and benefit fully from, the Information Society and the knowledge economy."

ICTs can contribute to achieving universal education worldwide, through delivery of education and training of teachers, and offering improved conditions for lifelong learning, encompassing people that are outside the formal education process, and improving professional skills.

The WSIS outputs identified a number of key initiatives that should be undertaken to promote capacity building vis--vis ICTs. During this session, some of the key trends that have emerged and how ICTs are being used for eduction, learning and development will be discussed by the panellits followed by a plenary debate.
