  Tool 1.4 Analysis of Dynamics for Change

The purpose of this tool is to assist planners and decision makers to assess the capacity of the country to introduce and sustain ICTs for Education within the context of how far the environment at the system level and school level is ready and allows for innovation and change. This will help decision makers and planners determine whether ICT interventions into education should be narrow or broad in scope and whether they should be introduced incrementally or comprehensively.*

The information generated in this Tool will be used as a major input into the process of identification and analysis of potential areas for ICT interventions in education (Tool 2.1) and the formulation and assessment of ICT-in-Education policies ( Tool 2.2.) It will also inform the process of planning for implementation (Toolbox 3, Toolbox 4, and Toolbox 5).

This tool focuses on the dynamics for innovation and change at both the system level and school level, along specific dimensions:

  • Dynamics for change at the system level:
    • Decision making modality
    • Degree of innovation of existing policies and plans for introducing ICTs in education
    • Degree of preparedness of the ICT sector to support ICTs for education
    • Attitude of decision makers and planners toward ICTs for education
  • Dynamics for change at the school level
    • Decision making modality
    • Characteristics of the teaching/learning environment
    • Preparedness of schools for ICTs in education
    • Approach to usage of ICTs for educational purposes
    • Attitude of school personnel
