Information about the project
Project title *
Laid out in four substantive guidebooks, this kit is targeted especially towards policy- and decision-makers, school managers, practitioners, teachers and principals. Guidebook One provides a general overview and discusses how ICTs have been understood to improve the value and quality of education. Guidebook Two looks at planning a schoolnet programme, in terms of infrastructure, professional development, online content, curriculum integration etc, as well as ways in which to integrate change management, the sustainability of schoolnet activities and how can we better institutionalise programmes. Guidebook Three is more hands-on and practical. It is targeted towards the people actually running the projects – looking at the educational and social value of online communities, technological components, the different ways in which technologies can be adapted and so on. Guidebook Four is a practitioners’ guide, setting out the typical processes which they may follow.
