In promoting the use of ICT in education, KAWA wishes to work with Makerere University College of Education and External Studies implement the CICT-CFTU which aims at tapping technology-assisted learning opportunities and bridging the digital divide in education in Uganda. The project dealing with Training and Professional Development of Teachers/Facilitators in the Effective Use of ICTs for Improved Teaching and Learning, focuses on the capacity-building of teachers in using ICTs to help them develop the necessary skills and knowledge of related pedagogies to enhance the teaching-learning process. The objectives of this project are:
- to improve the competencies of teachers and facilitators, through both pre-service education and in-service training, in integrating/infusing ICTs as pedagogical tools and educational resources to facilitate active student learning;
- to identify, create and disseminate country- and locally-specific ICT pedagogies and models of ICT use in different learning environments;
- to develop and put into operation a national online teacher resource base and offline network of teacher training institutions to share teacher-developed educational courseware and innovative practices.
The project will achieve these objectives through a variety of activities, including:
- developing national guidelines on curriculum framework and standards of ICT infusion by teachers;
- creating course materials for pre-service teacher education and training modules for in-service teacher training;
- designing templates of ICT-integrated e-lesson plans and evaluation tools for teachers to facilitate and assess their students’ active learning;
- training teachers through “train the trainer” workshops at district/regional and national/local levels, who will in turn train much larger numbers of peer teachers in school-based training;
- developing and pilot testing specific models and pedagogies in ICT integration by teachers, school heads and education managers;
- cultivating an online teacher resource base to support teachers and school heads in integrating ICTs in classroom teaching and school-based management;
- creating an offline network of teacher training centres to share innovative practices;
- sharing products outside the pilot countries for feedback gathering, to identify and reward the most innovative e-lesson plans and ICT integration pedagogies, and for the inclusion of international resources.
