Developing the use of information and communication technology to enhance teaching and learning in East African schools: review of the literature

This review was carried out by a team of collaborators based at the Aga Khan University Institute for Educational Development – Eastern Africa (AKU IED-EA), AKU IED-Pakistan and Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge.

This review synthesises the literature on uses of information and communications technology (ICT) in primary and secondary schools in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), with a particular focus on Commonwealth countries and on East Africa. It focuses on the role of ICT in improving the quality of learning and teaching in schools (Grades K-12) with reference to technologies appropriate for this context. In so doing, the review casts new light on the supporting and constraining factors that influence ICT integration in education in the region.
