ICT in Education Toolkit

1. Preparation for Scenario Formation

  Step 1: Review Pertinent Information

Step 1. Access and review pertinent information

Access and review the following files from Tool 2.1 (Identification of Educational Areas for ICT Intervention):

Priority Items for ICT Interventions
Enhancing quality of learning
Expanding educational opportunities
Improving policy planning and management

Access and review the following files from Tool 1.2 (Mapping of Educational Context)
Educational Goals and Plans

  Step 2: Review Ideas

Step 2. Review Reference Handbook for Ideas about ICT Interventions

The team, or a designated expert group should research the Reference Handbook  to review and take note of:

  • The role and nature of ICTs
  • The potential of ICTs for addressing each priority area in terms of possibilities or specific solutions and lessons of individual case studies.
    • Expanding educational opportunities
    • Enhancing quality of learning
    • Enriching quality of teaching
    •  Facilitating skill formation
    • Establishing and sustaining lifelong learning
    • Improving policy planning and management
    • Advancing community linkages

* You may also use the SEARCH HANDBOOK feature to find relevant information.

To view the parameters necessary for the potential of ICTs to be realized for each priority area,
 View Reference Handbook, Section 6: "From Potential To Effectiveness."

- The group should also tap other resources available on the Internet.

Targeted Priority Area

After the reviews conducted in Steps 1 and 2, if you decide to group together more than one priority item into a targeted priority area, consolidate the elements of these priority items and enter them below.

Once you define the elements of the Targeted Priority Area, give it a distinctive title.

  Step 3: Compose Targeted Priority Areas

Step 3. Compose Targeted Priority Areas

Taking into consideration the information reviewed in Step 1 and Step 2 above, the team should decide whether ICT-intervention scenarios will be formulated for each individual item in the priority lists developed in 2.1 (Identification and Analysis of Educational Areas for ICT Interventions) and reviewed in Step 1, or whether priority items should be grouped together depending on the relations among them to form one targeted priority area for ICT intervention.

The options are:

  • Treating each item in the priority list separately with the possibility of some adjustments 
  • Combining some or all priority items within a specific educational objective list
  • Combining priority items across educational objectives
  • Combining all priority items across educational objectives into one targeted area

Irrespective of the option selected, it is important to include all the priority items in the targeted areas. It is also advisable not to combine priority items unless there is a clear justification for that.

On the basis of your decisions, click the "Create Targeted Priority Area" button below to compose a consolidated list of targeted priority areas for ICT interventions using all the options cited above.
