Expected Outcomes

A. Introduction This section outlines outcomes16 that are intended to result from the measures described in the ICT in Education Strategy. The proposed Implementation Plan envisages substantial investments, plus budgetary commitments for operating costs. The expected benefits may used in the formulation of impact indicators that can be used to measure the performance of the program. It is important to note that overall project costs increase substantially as deployment to remote areas increases. However, expected benefits—in terms of access to tools and learning resources, participation in collaborative activities and contests, teacher professional development, and reporting—increase

16 “Outcomes” are considered here as changes in actions, behaviors and relations among individuals and groups that result directly from project activities (properly, “outputs”). “Impacts” would be considered as longer-term and largerscale effects arising both directly and indirectly from project activities. Impacts may be positive or negative (e.g., lower rates of teacher retention, etc.).

exponentially when ICT infrastructure is provided to schools in remote areas.

B. Expected Outcomes The outcomes described here are directly related to the activities proposed in the ICT in Education Strategy. However, given the integrated relationships of the various program components, it would generally be inaccurate to link individual outcomes to specific components. As an example, establishing ICT infrastructure supports increased use of learning resources, but such increased use also depends on effective dissemination of learning resources and on TPD to build teacher awareness. Rather than linking to program components, outcomes will be presented in relation to “agents” in the education system, such as teachers, students, DINAS personnel and others. Outcomes for Secondary Students. As a result of program activities, secondary students will: Increase their enthusiasm for school and their motivation to learn
