What have we done? What impact have we made? What have we learned? How will we use what we have learned to inform future interactions? These questions were posed by Patti Swarts, GESCI’s Director of Programmes during the Strengthening Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (SIPSE) national policy workshop in Mwanza, Tanzania on 29 April 2015.
The purpose of the workshop was to develop policy recommendations on issues around integration of ICT in secondary education in Tanzania based on lessons from the implementation of the SIPSE project. Participants deliberated on trends in education in developing countries – especially the growing demands on teacher curriculum delivery in relation to student-teacher ratios and advances in technology.
