Abstract: The integration of information, communication, and technology (ICT) is a popular trend in contemporary educational practices, but does this approach make sense for developing countries? This paper provides an in-depth critique of the decision by the Cambodia Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports (MOEYS) to become an early adopter of ICT development in education. By employing the human capital theory (HCT) and globalization perspectives, a critical analysis of Cambodia’s ICT in education policy design and approach was conducted and used to ascertain key points that national policymakers may consider as they fine-tune future policy revisions. The overall analysis advises policymakers to employ HCT modelling methods when developing educational programming so that market needs are better met. Further recommendations include leveraging globalization principles to counter the negative influences of globalization to ensure more effective ICT programming.
