New technologies in the information and communications arena, especially the Internet, have been seen as ushering in a new age. There is a mainstream view that such technologies have only technical rather than social implications. The dramatic positive changes brought in by these information and communication technologies (ICTs), however, have not touched all of humanity. Existing power relations in society determine the enjoyment of benefits from ICTs, This paper was conducted mainly to identify the extent of the application of digital technology in some rural development projects in Sohag governorate, Egypt. Data collected through an interview schedule questionnaire with a sample of (169) respondents in various developmental projects available in the villages under the study which were educational institutions, health institutions, and agricultural extension centers. In addition to the very low extent of implementing the new digital technologies in the rural development programs or projects there are certain important constraints standing against the effective implementation of digital technology tools in the development projects are, respectively: 1-Lack of the adequate training for workers in this development projects, 2-lack of effective training on the computer and internet , 3-lack of manpower working in this field, 4 – Non availability of sufficient expenditure related to that area (devices, Internet points, ..etc), 5 – The management awareness regarding the role played by the digital technology in improving the performance of work is very low, 6 – The low level of motivation of those who works in such areas to encourage them to apply technological means.
