Overview and examples from Rwanda

Abstract:

In 1999, Rwanda adopted a national policy framework with the stated goal of shifting the country’s economic engine from agriculture to knowledge production. Fiberoptic cable has been laid throughout the country, laptops purchased for primary teachers and students, and universities and international technology companies invited to deliver expertise and solutions. As a result, Rwanda has attracted a great number of initiatives aiming to improve education outcomes through using various technological tools – open and distance learning programs, e-learning softwares, video programming, interactive radio instruction, online communities and information repositories, telecenters, subsidized bandwidth rates to education, and mobile learning programs, to name a few.

Over the past three years, the Ministry of Education has sought to coordinate, evaluate, and guide these activities. Baseline studies have been conducted and ICT for education policies adopted. But metrics for success vary and are not standardized, and government capacity to drive the ICT4E agenda has wavered.
