Panafrican Research Agenda on the Integration of ICTs in Education - Phase I

The last few years have seen progress in the introduction of information and communication technologies (ICTs), particularly the Internet, in education systems on the African continent. Public and private initiatives have contributed to equipment and connectivity. But, the use of ICTs for educational purposes is still rare, as is research on the subject. Hence the need for a Pan African Research Agenda on the Integration of ICTs in Education. The Pan African Research Agenda aims to better understand how ICTs can improve the quality of African education from the primary to the tertiary level.

This project will set the Agenda in motion by taking inventory (policies, infrastructure, teacher training, uses, impact, etc.) of ICTs in education. Training and educational research institutions in 10 countries (Cameroon, Congo, Egypt, Kenya, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Uganda, Sénégal and South Africa) will participate and strengthen their research capacity at the same time. An Observatory will be put in place to organize the collection, analysis and diffusion of data to researchers, decision-makers and other users.
