Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has transformed how people, society and organizations share and disseminate knowledge, experiences and information. Opportunities for enhanced knowledge dissemination in health, education, agriculture and other development programmes have been availed. This study assesses the resurging role of ICT in development based on the experiences of Uganda and Zimbabwe. Receiving and applying information is critical to the acquisition and generation of knowledge and clarifying different facets of this new technology is critical. Because knowledge matters, understanding how people and societies acquire and use knowledge and why they sometimes fail to do so is essential to improving people s lives, especially the lives of the poorest. The idea of technology as a solution and therefore as development can be seen in the vast interest to acquire as much technology as is possible. But many people have been asking the question,,,how should the role of technology in development be understood. Thus enhanced understanding of this technology in development is still a prerequisite especially in the circumstances of developing countries.
