Mapping of the Teaching/Learning Environment is achieved by completing a questionnaire that provides a profile of teaching/learning process and practice. Such a profile will help in the selection of appropriate ICTs for such an environment. On the other hand, the profile may indicate that the environment is not conducive for an efficient use of ICTs and may require some reform to maximize the returns from investment in ICTs.
The questionnaire may be used to map the teaching/learning environment as defined by
Level of education (primary, secondary, or both)
Geographic feature (rural, urban, or both)
The tool creates a graphic profile of each specific teaching/learning environment.
In completing the questionnaire, the team may seek input from individuals or institutions more knowledgeable of specific environments as defined above, such as urban secondary schools or rural primary schools. This can be done in one of two ways:
The Facilitation Team sends the survey through the Toolkit to designated individuals who will complete it online. The Facilitation Team is able to view the results and save them
The Team can download the questionnaire form and send it to the designated persons to be completed and returned. The Team can then enter the responses into the electronic forms and save the results for further use.
