To map readiness for ICT-related interventions in education, you will need information regarding the following subjects:

  • Policies, plans and projects related to the ICT sector
  • Preparedness and capacity of the ICT sector
  • Policies, plans and projects related to ICTs in education
  • Preparedness and capacity of the education sector for effective ICT interventions. This includes information on hardware availability, quality of infrastructure and hardware and support for ICT interventions.
  • The way schools presently use ICTs for educational purposes
