ICT4E-SHSP
Like many developing countries, in Bangladesh, conventional methodologies are still being practiced to equip children with the necessary skills and prepare them for the 21st century’s globalised and competitive economy. The Ministry of Education is implementing the ICT for Education in Secondary and Higher Secondary Level project, in partnership with private and global actors. The objectives of the project are: (a) familiarizing all secondary and higher secondary students with ICT tools; (b) equipping them with modern education to increase their employment prospects; (c) making class-rooms more interactive; and, most importantly, (d) mitigating digital divide between rural and urban students.
