Using ICT to support science and mathematics education in Rwanda

This EdQual’s research project addressed the challenge of how to use Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) in schools to enhance teaching and learning, with a particular focus on science and mathematics in basic education. It centred around the implementation and evaluation of a collaborative professional development programme, working with more than 65 teachers for four years.

Key Policy Messages:

• Allow student-centred learning with ICT.

• Exploit available technology,including mobile technology (e.g. “One laptop per child”).

• Understand how out-of-school use of ICT impacts on learning in school and develop positive strategies to address this.

• Contribute to quality education by communicating innovativeclassroom practices.
