The paper argues that six fundamental principles of good practice must be addressed for ICT in education programmes to be effective: a shift from an emphasis on "education for ICT" to the use of "ICT for education"; an integration of ICT practice within the whole curriculum; a need for integration between pre-service and in-service teacher training; a need for the development of relevant and locally produced content; a need for appropriate educational partnerships; and an emphasis on the development of sustainable costing models. The paper concludes with a framework for action to deliver the very real benefits of ICT for teacher training in Africa. Open Learning: The Journal of Open and Distance Education, 20(2), 113-129.
