The Internet & Rural Development ME 216 Information & Communication Technology In Industry

  1. 1. The Internet & Rural Development ME 217 Information & CommunicationTechnology in Industry Presented by: Jo Anne Almonte-Marteja Master in Management Engineering Dr. Jo Bitonio Professor
  2. 2. Promoting access to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in rural areas has been identified as an important tool to alleviate poverty. Through the use of ICT services, rural communities can find new income earning opportunities, improve the delivery of basic services, and enhance their participation in decision making processes. http://www.unescap.org/pdd/prs/ProjectActivities/Ongoing/ICT/ict-rural.asp
  3. 3. Internet  It was conceived and designed in 1963 by Larry Roberts, working for the advance research projects agency (ARPA) with funding from the United States Department.  The Internet is relatively cheap, powerful, decentralized and potentially an ideal platform to build a flexible and powerful environment for sharing and learning. The Internet is the first communication tool that allows every user to be a sender, receiver, narrowcaster and broadcaster in a global sphere (Richardson, 1996).
  4. 4. “ The Philippines is a key country in Southeast Asia in terms of its digital economy and tech-savvy population. This new office will allow us to better engaged with our local users, partners and advertisers. Over 33 million Filipinos access the Internet regularly to study, shop, search for ideas, opportunities, create new businesses, and connect to each other. And Internet use is set to grow exponentially. Research indicates that number of Filipinos online will have nearly doubled by 2016!" said Julian Persaud, Managing Director of Google in Southeast Asia. http://www.entrepreneur.com.ph/ideas-and-opportunities/article/good-to-know-philippine-web-statistics Jan 31,2013 Search engine company, Google, has opened an office in Makati to help local business grow both here and abroad. It is a key part of the company's efforts to develop a range of products and services specifically suited for the Philippine market.
  5. 5. -There are over 33 million Internet users and 1.5 million broadband subscribers (ADMA 2012) -The Philippines is the second top Internet user in Southeast Asia, 6th in Asia and the 17th in the world.

  23. 23. The Philippine government is currently experimenting on new wireless Internet technology, dubbed as “Super Wi-Fi,” to connect the more than 60 million Filipinos living in rural areas that are still out of reach of the Internet. Information and Communications Technology Office (ICTO) Executive Director Louis Casambre said they have already begun initial pilot tests of the technology in the Quezon City Science Community, with pilot tests in Western Visayas and Mindanao by the end of the year. He said full deployment is seen in the Visayas and Mindanao region by the end of 2013, with implementation in Luzon to follow in 2014. As much as 703 Mbps of bandwidth capacity will be available for deployment in rural areas, he added. With increased penetration in rural areas, Casambre said the Super Wi-Fi technology can jumpstart economic development by giving access to e-Commerce, e-Learning, and e- Government tools to rural folk, subsequently increasing their incomes and pushing the economic status upwards in the countryside.

  24. 24. One Laptop per Child (OLCP) Program in Lubang Island, Mindoro Occidental The local government of Lubang Island in collaboration with non-government organizations, and private companies has launched the “OLPC” project that aims to provide free laptops to elementary students in the island in 2010- becoming the first OLPC adoption in Southeast Asia. The OLPC Program is an initiative intended for school children aged 6 to 12 years, residents of Lubang island, a low-class municipality in Mindoro Occidental, Visayas Region of the Philippines. The program aims to create educational opportunities by providing these school children with a rugged, low-cost, low-power and connected laptops bundled with software designed for collaborative, joyful, and self-empowered learning. This program equalizes the learning opportunity of learners in urban centers and those in remote areas thereby closing the digital gap.

  25. 25. Boac Telerad Experience The experience of Boac Community eCenter (CeC) states the precedence for other CeCs to explore the convergence of new services and products in their communities. For years, Marinduque had no practicing radiologist/sonologist in the province; residents needed to go to laboratories located towns and cities as far as Metro Manila to have their x-ray and ultrasound results interpreted. Realizing the need for a more efficient system to deliver basic health services to its community, the local government of Boac used ICT to fill the gap in delivering health service with efficiency. With the help of the UP Telehealth Center, the Boac Teleradiology, an image sending station based in the Boac CeC, was born right after the re-election (2007) of Mayor Solomon, established at the Dr. Pablo Marquez Health and Diagnostic Center. The first-of-a-kind service has established Boac as the ‘Center for Teleradiology’, serving not only its municipality but the entire region of Marinduque.

  26. 26. Basic and Customized Internet Literacy Course for Rural Women Commission on Information and Communications Technology (CICT) piloted the implementation of the Basic and Customized Internet Literacy Course for Rural Women, a project which taps the potential of ICT to provide women in rural areas with accessibility tools to promote their local livelihood. Aside from the provision of access points, the project further aims train women in the rural communities on the use, application and services of ICT as a vehicle for improving their social and economic conditions. The project has been piloted in the CeCs of Bato, Leyte and Binalonan, Pangasinan in the Philippines. The program will be replicated as a training tool in other Philippine CeCs.

  27. 27. The First Mile of Connectivity  Titus Moetsabi coined rural communities as being the ‘first mile of connectivity’, expresses a more equitable and far less urban-centric view of the challenge of providing everyone with the option of connecting themselves to the rest of the world and all it has to offer.  If rural communities are the "first mile," then the real challenge for enhancing rural connectivity lies with the urban-centered governments, businesses and agencies that have for so long ignored or placated the desires of rural people to get connected to the world.
  28. 28. The First Mile of Connectivity  For a rural person, getting connected is a means for sharing the wide range of options available to urbanites, a means for making better and more informed decisions, a means for staying in contact with friends and families who migrate to urban areas for work and education, a means for linking their businesses to the trade, transportation and commerce systems of urban areas, and a means for accessing the services (health, education, information, etc.) that enable urban people to improve their lives.
  29. 29. Solutions for rural connectivity are best developed with and for rural people. Rural people must be enabled to participate in making decisions about how and where telecommunication technologies will be put to use. Access to the technologies, and influence on their use, must be equitable across the diverse groupings within rural communities (including gender, class, ethnicity, age and wealth). To be sustainable, rural telecommunication technologies need to be designed with rural people as active participants in strategizing, planning, implementing and evaluating. The First Mile of Connectivity
  30. 30. A New Era of Accessibility: or Is It? Accessibility has always been important to retailers, politicians, and geographers, inter alia. Individual access refers to one’s ability to reach or obtain something (usually something desirable such as a paying job, medical care, or entertainment), and in the non-virtual world achieving access -often even access to information-requires physical mobility. In both physical and virtual access, one must know of the existence of a destination that will meet one’s needs, be aware of how such a destination might be found, and be able to reach the destination.
  31. 31. A New Era of Accessibility: or Is It? Grounded geographies shape the Internet by guiding the placement of IT infrastructure such that—at regional and even intraurban scales --physical access to the Internet closely resembles pre-Internet patterns of spatial access to goods and services. But physical access to Internet infrastructure alone does not equate to access. Pre-Internet geographies shape constraints on individuals’ accessibility to usable information and knowledge on the Internet in other ways as well.
  32. 32. Rural Radio in the Philippines Radio is the most reliable for distributing news, information and entertainment in the Philippines’rural interior, wher mountains often get in the way of TV signals. According to the National Commission on Culture and the Arts, radio reaches 85% of households in the country, whereas television reaches just under 60%. Source: Philippines: media and telecoms landscape guide. Infoasaid, 2012, p.13 Radios are everywhere, with at least 75% of households in developing countries having access to a radio. Source: EFA Global Monitoring Report, 2012, p.248
  33. 33. Rural Radio in the Philippines  Radio is ‘the window to the world’ for many poor people. It has reached and helped people who are impoverished, ill and isolated, as well as minorities who have tended to be ignored and neglected.  Radio provides the needed reach, frequency, and access to rural and remote areas, making it a promising, appropriate and powerful tool for education. In addition, ownership and patronage among poor households are relatively high compared to other media forms, particularly in rural settings.
  34. 34. Lessons of Participatory Communication and Training to Rural Telecentres  The provision of access to ICTs by rural communities in developing countries is likely to go through telecentres. The purpose of these considerations is to ensure that this development is as effective, efficient, sustainable and equitable as possible, so that the promise of the technology becomes a reality - a tool in the hands of rural people. ICTs will not fulfill their potential for rural development unless the special characteristics of the technologies are combined with applications, which focus on participatory communication and training methodologies.
  35. 35. Lessons of Participatory Communication and Training to Rural Telecentres Telecentres are not just technology centres; they can also be living laboratories, which facilitate local sharing of information and ideas. A telecentre can take full advantage of global information as well as facilitate the creation of a common local development vision. Telecentres are not only a way to provide simple, single-point access to external information and services, but also a facility for local residents and groups to organize village meetings, video conferences and technology training to address their development needs.
  36. 36. When selecting locations for telecentres, consideration should be given to the level of potential demand for communication and information services from a large number and a wide range of users. The proximity of the telecentre to other organizations and institutions that can play roles in using, supporting, maintaining or operating the telecentre should be investigated. Infrastructural considerations should include: a location that is easily accessible to potential users; the availability of an existing structure; access to electricity; and connection to telephone lines and the Internet. Socio-cultural aspects that may affect the utilization of the telecentre, or which groups within the community have access to the telecentre, should be investigated. Lessons of Participatory Communication and Training to Rural Telecentres
  37. 37. Lessons of Participatory Communication and Training to Rural Telecentres  Local needs and skills assessment A participatory needs assessment can help to identify the information and training requirements of the local population. At the same time, it is important to uncover local skills and knowledge.  The communication for development approach Communication for development “begins with the needs of people in rural communities and grassroots agricultural organizations and works to establish vertical and horizontal channels of communication“ (Richardson, 1997).
  38. 38. Lessons of Participatory Communication and Training to Rural Telecentres  Awareness building for ICTs To assist rural people to identify what technological applications, services and content they may need or want, they will have to be familiar with the uses of the technologies and the potential applications and content appropriate for their situations.  Links and integration with existing communication processes It is important to direct attention to how telecentre infrastructure and technology can best be configured or organized to facilitate group use.
  39. 39. Lessons of Participatory Communication and Training to Rural Telecentres  Training Training for agricultural and rural development can do more than provide improved knowledge and skills for individuals - it can also improve the quality of life and the environment of rural communities by "development through collaborative learning“ (Bawden,1996).  Participatory monitoring and evaluation It is necessary to monitor and evaluate the process of telecentre development and implementation. The elements monitored should not only include the number of users and the telecentre services that are most utilized, but also the impact of the telecentre on the quality of life in rural areas.
  40. 40. The Case of Carmona and Puerto Princesa Carmona is located on the southeastern part of the province of Cavite. A rapidly industrializing municipality that is located very close to Metro Manila. In this respect, it is an area where ICTs and competition among the various industry players are more observable. The lay out of the land is also relatively flat and much smaller compared to Puerto Princesa, and very few of its barangays are considered rural.
  41. 41. The Case of Carmona and Puerto Princesa Puerto Princesa is a city located in the western provincial island of Palawan, Philippines. Though the provincial seat of government for Palawan, the city itself is one of 38 independent cities within the Philippines not controlled by the province in which it is geographically located and is therefore an independent area located within Palawan. One of the larger cities in the country with respect to land area. Despite of being a city, many of its barangays are still rural. There’s also a wide variety in barangays, with some located in the coast, some in farm lands, and others in mountainous areas.

  48. 48. What is GIS?  A geographic information system (GIS) integrates hardware, software, and data for capturing, managing, analyzing, and displaying all forms of geographically referenced information.  GIS allows us to view, understand, question, interpret, and visualize data in many ways that reveal relationships, patterns, and trends in the form of maps, globes, reports, and charts.  A GIS helps you answer questions and solve problems by looking at your data in a way that is quickly understood and easily shared.  GIS technology can be integrated into any enterprise information system framework. http://www.esri.com/what-is-gis/overview
  49. 49. Five Components of GIS
  50. 50. Hardware Hardware capabilities affect the processing speed, ease of use and the type of output available. A GIS can run on a wide range of hardware types, ranging from desktop computers to large computer servers. Other hardware components include graphics devices, plotters, printers and scanners. http://library.oceanteacher.org/OTMediawiki/index.php/File:GIScomponents.png
  51. 51. Software GIS software provides the functions and tools needed to store, analyze, and display geographic information. Key software components are  a database management system (DBMS)  tools for the input and manipulation of geographic information  tools that support geographic query, analysis, and visualization  a graphical user interface (GUI) for easy access to tools http://www.sfu.ca/rdl/GIS/tour/comp_gis.html
  52. 52. Data Data is the core of any GIS. There are two types of data used in a GIS spatial and tabular (also known as attribute data). The availability and accuracy of data will affect the results of any analysis. A GIS can integrate data from a number of different sources and store in a database management system. http://library.oceanteacher.org/OTMediawiki/index.php/File:GIScomponents.png
  53. 53. Approaches Procedures are the defined methods used to analyze the data and produce accurate results. The procedures include access protocols, standards and guidelines. http://library.oceanteacher.org/OTMediawiki/index.php/File:GIScomponents.png
  54. 54. People GIS technology is of limited value without the people who manage the system and to develop plans for applying it. GIS users range from technical specialists who design and maintain the system to those who use it to help them do their everyday work. http://www.sfu.ca/rdl/GIS/tour/comp_gis.html
  55. 55. How GIS Works Spatial data refers to geographic areas or features. Features occupies a location. Non-spatial data has no specific location in space. It can however, have a geographic component and be linked to a geographic location.Tabular and attribute data are non- spatial but can be linked to location. Spatial and Non-spatial Data http://www.sfu.ca/rdl/GIS/tour/gis_wrk.html
  56. 56. How GIS Works Themes •Themes link features with their attributes •Themes are linked by geography •Collections of themes form a GIS database http://www.sfu.ca/rdl/GIS/tour/gis_wrk.html
  57. 57. How GIS Works Geographic databases (themes) can be used to solve problems like:  Visualizing customer locations is critical to businesses trying to make better marketing decisions. http://www.sfu.ca/rdl/GIS/tour/gis_wrk.html Site Location • Analyzing location is key to making decisions about where to set up a business or service.
  58. 58. How GIS Works Geographic databases (themes) can be used to solve problems like:  Presenting information as maps reveals relationships and patterns that may otherwise be hidden. http://www.sfu.ca/rdl/GIS/tour/gis_wrk.html Site Location Other applications include: •tracking delivery vehicles •recording details of planning applications •modelling global atmospheric circulation
  59. 59. How GIS Works Explicit Geographic Reference  latitude and longitude  national grid coordinate Implicit Geographic Reference  postal code  census tract name  forest stand identifier  road name  Geocoding = deriving implicit from explicit references. These geographic references allow you to locate features (like a business or forest stand) and events (like an earthquake) on the surface of the earth for analysis. http://www.sfu.ca/rdl/GIS/tour/gis_wrk.html Geo-coding and Geo-referencing
  60. 60. How GIS Works http://www.sfu.ca/rdl/GIS/tour/gis_wrk.html The vector model  information about points, lines, and polygons  encoded and stored as a collection of x,y coordinates The raster model  models continuous features  a collection of grid cells Data Models RealWorld Vector Raster
  61. 61. Benefits of GIS http://www.esri.com/what-is-gis/overview July 30,2013 GIS benefits organizations of all sizes and in almost every industry. There is a growing awareness of the economic and strategic value of GIS. The benefits of GIS generally fall into five basic categories:  Cost Savings and Increased Efficiency  Better Decision Making  Improved Communication  Better Recordkeeping  Managing GeographicallyKuwait University uses GIS to design and build a multibillion-dollar expansion
  62. 62. Cost Savings and Increased Efficiency GIS is widely used to optimize maintenance schedules and daily fleet movements. Typical implementations can result in a savings of 10 to 30 percent in operational expenses through reduction in fuel use and staff time, improved customer service, and more efficient scheduling.
