A Multi-Stakeholder Perspective
Can the available research on the assessment of learning (particularly regarding learning to read) contribute to a more effective way to improve educational outcomes in developing countries? By Dr Wagner, 2011
In May 2010 GeSCI co-hosted a research workshop with the Pan African Observatory at e-Learning Africa in Lusaka, Zambia. The workshop process was framed by the GeSCI commissioned ICT Education Meta-review Research conducted by Professor John Le Baron and Beth Mc Donough in 2009. The workshop brought together researchers and collaborating partners in a panel discussion serving as a knowledge exchange on African ICT in Education research at the eLA conference. The research panel presentations provided a forum for researchers from different institutions and partnerships to share their original work, models and insights about the research development process in the Africa region. An open discussion then produced suggestions and recommendations to address opportunities for innovative research in the African ICT in Education & Development context
GESCI Meta-Review Research Report on ICT in Education and Development
This research was limited to studies conducted between 2006 and 2008, and included articles from traditional peer-reviewed literature and “grey literature,” such as policy reports, conference papers, and popular media releases. Although the search scope focused on five thematic streams outlined in GeSCI’s Terms of Reference, the comprehensive nature of these combined themes dictated a search methodology that was both broad and deep.
The following five themes were specified in GeSci’s TOR:
1. Educational ICT leadership and management
2. ICT infrastructure, connectivity and accessibility
3. Integration of ICTs into teaching and learning
4. Teacher education and ICT
5. Educational Content and ICT
The paper will attempt to present some practitioner perspectives, insights and experiences which the GeSCI gained from its work in and with partner countries in three continents. by Patti Swarts, GESCI

L’avancement des Technologies de l’Information et de la Communication (TIC) est souvent décrit comme la troisième révolution de la diffusion du savoir et de l’amélioration de l’enseignement- la première révolution étant l’invention du langage écrit et la seconde celle du développement des caractères d’imprimerie et des livres.
