    Abstract

    Electronic Governance, as defined by UNESCO is "the public sector's use of information and communication technologies with the aim of improving information and service delivery, encouraging citizen participation in the decision-making process and making government more accountable, transparent and effective". It can also be described as the process of forming relationship among stakeholders in order to achieve the common consensus. This tutorial will focus on what we consider are the main discussion topics on the relationship between Electronic Governance and Education, namely e-capacity building, and e-literacy, in the context of the existing digital divide and the goal of an inclusive society. For the purpose of this tutorial, we will analyze the interrelation between Electronic Governance and Education considering that the usage of ICTs for Education can lead to increased citizen engagement and participation, strengthening Electronic Governance.
