Our education programmes have been designed for educators with the least digital skills and for environments with limited digital tools. Our experts have worked with educators in developing countries to ensure the programmes are practical and can be applied with the least resources. Our programmes have been successfully rolled out in public schools across rural communities.
Education planning is a key starting point in the integration of ICTs in teaching & learning. Education administrators play a huge role in this planning process. We support education administrators in developing digital education transformation policy and implementation guides.
