  2. CONTENT • Current TPD’s situation in Rwanda • Existing strengths for TPD in ICT • Challenges to TPD in ICT programmes • Achievements in terms of TPD in ICT • Case of KIE • The Way to Go TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  3. 1. Current TPD’s situation in ICT in Rwanda • High Education Institutions (Public/Private) with departments of Computer Science /engineering leading to the Degree or Diploma b. In-service & Pre-Service programmes (But only KIE is specialized in Education) c. Graduation of hundreds of students every year with ICT related knowledge d. Secondary schools are getting qualified teachers TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  4. Current TPD’s situation in ICT in Rwanda (Contd…) e. Introduction of the system of Learner Centered Pedagogy- LCP in HEIs f. Introduction of ICT module/course (Compulsory) in Academic Curriculum g. Secondary schools are equipped in ICT material even if not enough h. Some secondary schools teachers are ICT literate (either from KIE or by training in-service) nearly 8000 teachers trained by RITC – May 2009 i. The will of Universities/Institutes to respect the ideal ration of 1:5 (ration computer/students) TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  5. 2. Existing strengths for TPD in ICT • High commitment of the Leadership in GoR through MINEDUC. • Big Budget allocated to ICT in HEIs • Established ICT in Education policy and many other policies related to ICT • Good cooperation between GoR and its Donors, between GoR and International Organizations either GOs or NGOs e.g CISCO, NEPAD, Microsoft, GTZ, DFID, GeSCI,…….. TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  6. Existing strengths for TPD in ICT (contd)… e. National Projects/Agencies involved in ICT training for teachers at Secondary & Tertiary Level e.g RITA, RDG, OLPC, RITC, CGIS……. TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  7. 3. Challenges to TPD in ICT programmes • Lack of Resource material • Lack of Skilled Human resources in ICT with Education • Needs of sensitization of stakeholders in TPD • Problem of Strategy plan for TPD in ICT establishment TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  8. a. Resource material lacking • Lack of access to electric power • Equipment not sufficient in schools • Network infrastructure • Low bandwidth • Computer hardware is in short supply and expensive, no domestic production, dependency on other countries • Dependency on foreign aids TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  9. b. Lack of Skilled Human Resources in ICT with Education • The skilled manpower is small in ICT with Education (only KIE is producing) • Lack of ICT trained teachers in schools (there are still few) • Teacher training focused only in the use of ICT as an add-on (technology add-on) to the traditional curricula and standardized test systems (Except some Universities’ teachers) • Even those who can apply ICT in development of digital literacy (technology literacy) are prisoners of the traditional system of preparation/teaching/assessment. (Scheme of work format, Lesson plan format, Journal de classe,…) TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  10. c. Needs of sensitization of stakeholders in TPD • Lack of awareness of ICT in general • Most Rwandan Schools teachers are unaware of ICT and its potential for development • Secondary Schools and HEI are still using traditional chalk and talk teaching in absence of digital content • Multimedia based teaching material, educational CDs, simulations are rarely used • Communication between schools and teacher training institutions within and across boundaries should be facilitated • Lack of policy to deal comprehensively with TPD for ICT integration TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  11. Needs of sensitization of stakeholders in TPD (contd)… • Teachers and teachers Educators should genuinely “Own” the process of ICT integration to enable them to be creative in adapting ICT to the own classroom circumstances. • Control of a big flow of digital resources from donors or partners which put stick (Baton) in the wheels of Rwandans who are willing to innovate (to be discussed…) TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  12. Needs of sensitization of stakeholders in TPD (contd)… • Students who specialize in ICT tend to leave the teaching field behind for business and industry jobs after graduation (This is concerning the GoR) TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  13. 4. Achievements in terms of TPD in ICT • More than the half of primary & Secondary schools have been equipped with hardware • + 8000 teachers have received ICT training through RITC • Agreement with MicroSoft for the use of their software in Rwandan schools • Universities/Institutes have computers and are independently connected to the Internet in various ways such as Fiber optic cable, wireless broadband (Wi-Fi), leased line and VSATs TPD for ICT in Rwanda

  14. Achievements in terms of TPD in ICT (contd)… • Rwanda Education and research network (RWEDNET) will allow broadband access for all HEI and research centers. Secondary and primary schools will be also connected. • Tele-centers establishment in all Districts of Rwanda to facilitate ICT access to rural community. TPD for ICT in Rwanda
