Information and communication technologies have changed the way people connect with one another. The last fifteen years have seen the rise of Internet-based protocols and other technologies that have been beneficial in the way we teach, perform research, and conduct practice. Universities have been quick to adapt to new realities and have led the way in adopting these technologies for education and research. While these changes have been common in economically developed countries, the digital divide with economically less developed nations continues to be of concern. This chapter provides an overview of the current and potential uses of technology in international education and research. It details some of the common tools being used to meet the demand of internationalizing curricula. It also provides case examples of how some programs have used technology to link universities in various continents. Finally, it discusses some of the barriers to using technology as well as some of the new tools available to social work academics and research.
