Information about the project
Students ICT Clubs
Students ICT Clubs is a grass-roots initiative that seeks to foster an ICT centric innovation ecosystem as a driver of national development by using a human centered design thinking approach, and ICT tools to develop home grown solutions to Zimbabwe’s most pressing issues. The introduction of Students ICT Clubs is however designed to emphasize changes of ICT integration from teacher-centred to learner-centred. With support from ICTAZ and its partners, the Clubs will create an innovative learning environment. This will involve new and innovative ways of approaching teaching and learning situations with specialized ICT tools for exploring a variety of real-world problems. With this approach, students are equipped with practical skills of using ICTs as tools to solve problems in the society. The project will also help bridge the growing innovation divide that is preventing stakeholders from enjoying the benefits of ICT by developing a culture of a well-functioning organic ICT innovation centric ecosystem that gives students an opportunity to showcase and experiment with their innovative ideas and projects. Students ICT Clubs, will offer the best possible solutions to attempt the complete integration of ICT innovation into Education. In advancing this initaitive, ICTAZ emphasizes the indispensable interrelationship between ICT innovations and sustainable development. We look forward to facilitate the development of game changing projects in ICT innovation for sustainable development by young Zimbabweans across the entire nation!
