The Role of ICT in School Sector Development in Nepal

30 August 2017 to 31 August 2017
Kathmandu
Nepal

Nepal is pushing the use of Information and Communication Technologies to achieve the broader goals of education. 

The workshop was designed to explore ways to strengthen Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in target schools and classrooms under the School Sector Development Program, Nepal's initiative to improve access, equity, and the quality of the entire school education system. As well as discussing potential ICT options for enhancing education outcomes, workshop participants also learned from the case studies of Singapore and South Korea, two countries that have excelled in the use of ICT in education.

The workshop focused on:

  • improving learning through ICT, particularly through improved pedagogy;
  • cost efficiency of education services using ICT, particularly to make high-quality teaching and learning resources available to even remote classrooms;
  • strengthening the operation and management of the education system; and
  • enhancing the monitoring and evaluation of teaching and learning with use of ICT.

The workshop is expected to pave the way for the adoption of well-selected ICT interventions that can contribute to a better implementation of the program in Nepal, leading to better returns for the students and teachers.
