Gender analysis essentially means separating gender as a category and examining a given phenomenon to see if the results are different for men or for women. With the goal of better understanding the multiplex challenges of equitable development, the PanAf project addresses gender, rural/ urban residence, and socioeconomic class, using both targeted and integrated methodologies. The indicators dealing with gender issues will produce tangible recommendations for improved ICTs-in-education equity while throughout the indicators, equity issues will be addressed in research design, implementation and evaluation. Since this research project aims to contribute to social and equitable change, and the issue of Gender issue is an essential component, the project incorporates a consideration of gender at many levels—from project management to data collection and analysis and results distribution.
