  2. Formulation of ICT Policy Scenarios
For each Targeted Priority Area defined in Step 3 above, the Team should generate a series of potential ICT-enhanced scenarios that will address the needs of the priority area. Scenarios will differ by type and use of the suggested ICTs. On the next page, you will add an additional "ICT-free" option for comparison with ICT-enhanced options for each Targeted Priority Area.

In the formulation of scenarios, the Team should take into consideration Each ICT- intervention scenario will include the following elements:
  1. Targeted Priority Area

  2. Description of the proposed ICT Intervention(s) - The intervention may involve one or more related technologies (Examples: Broadcast radio, Interactive Radio, Broadcast TV, Videos, Multimedia CD packages, Online courses, Virtual school or university, Virtual lab, Teacher development portal, Telecenters, skill training simulations, workplace e-training, Education management information system, Learning management system, Systematic use of Internet resources, etc…)

  3. The scope and scale of the ICT intervention (in terms of magnitude of the technologies, the educational elements targeted and the geographic areas covered. Also is the intervention a pilot, a duplication of an existing program or a large scale application?)

  4. Application of the intervention – (A short description of the way the technologies will be applied in the system and/or the institutions

  5. How the ICT intervention(s) will address the demands of the targeted priority area

  6.   ICT intervention and related existing ICT-in-education plans and programs- (Summary of related plans and programs. Will the ICT intervention incorporate them, and if so which ones and how.)

  7. How the ICT intervention(s) will help overcome the constraints, issues and bottlenecks identified earlier and reviewed in Step 1.)

  8. If applicable, how the ICT intervention(s) will advance the learning objectives (See Reference Handbook, Part 2 Section 4.2 including Tables 4.2.2 and 4.2.3)

  9. If applicable, how the ICT intervention(s) will foster the teaching objectives (See Reference Handbook, Part 2 Section 4.2 including Tables 4.2.4)

  10. Value-added- (What the ICT intervention(s) can contribute beyond what conventional non-ICT interventions can.)

A scenario should not include implementation plans. These plans will be developed at a later stage using Toolboxes 3 and 4.

The Team may use the above list as a guide for its deliberations and for drafting scenario elements. Alternatively, the "Create New Scenario" form may be downloaded and used for this purpose.

Once ready, please proceed to summarize your deliberations and record your results. Click the CREATE SCENARIO button and fill out the template for each proposed scenario that will address the needs of each priority area identified for ICT intervention in Step 1 above.

*Do not forget to include an "ICT-Free Scenario" for each targeted priority by clicking on the button below.
