Dr. Abu-Ghazaleh who served on the United Nations Information and Communication Technologies Task Force stressed on the effect of technology on education saying that "Education is a fundamental human right," "and if education is going truly to stand up as a human right, it needs to be of a world-class caliber and available to all in an equal manner."
