The government is finalising an intensive e-education programme which would ensure that information communication technology (ICT) is integrated in the teaching and learning processes. This was revealed by the minister for Education and Vocational Training, Dr Shukuru Kawambwa, in Dar es Salaam over the weekend. He said the programme dubbed “Tanzania Beyond Tomorrow” was important due to the fact that the world had become a village and therefore the ICT element was expected to enable Tanzanian children to compete globally. This, according to the minister, was part of the government’s plans to streamline the education sector between 2010 and 2015. “The second phase of Sedep (2010-2015) would see the completion of school infrastructure, providing teaching and learning materials, building science laboratories and libraries, as well as building capacities of the teaching teams,” he said.
