the digital divide

ICT for Schools project Uganda

This project aims to train teachers, head teachers, deputy head teachers and the director of studies on the use of ICT to improve the quality of teaching and learning.

In particular, the project raises awareness on the importance of using ICT for Education, on training teachers technically and pedagogically, on providing digital content and of monitoring the project schools use of computers for learning.

Computers for Schools Uganda has identified partner schools able to join the IT program. It also distributed Close the Gap computers to the recipient institutions and set up a maintenance program to ensure that ICT labs are properly set-up and maintained in the schools. A partnership between IICD and Schoolnet Uganda additionally ensures that the IT equipment will be used effectively and that the teaching staff is in a position to make full use of the benefits of ICT for educational purposes.
