On a backdrop of digital divides and information-knowledge-network societies recent
years have seen a wave of developmental initiatives considering technology and ICTs as
a way to create renewed development and empowerment. Implicit in some of these
initiatives are often one of two conceptions 1) technology as a well-defined and
autonomous actor which should have predictable impacts or 2) technology as neutral
means to an end which will empower in innocent ways. This presentation will invite to a
debate on how to approach the study of a One Laptop per Child initiative in Nigeria.
