Panafrican Research Agenda on the Pedagogical Integration of ICT

Friday 13 July 2007


The purpose of the proposed Panafrican Research Agenda on the Pedagogical Integration of ICT is to contribute to this broadening process and to participate in the access, construction, and production of knowledge in the information era.

The objective of this research project is to better understand how the pedagogical integration of ICT can improve the quality of teaching and learning in Africa. The development of an Observatory on ICT in African education would be the main activity in the initial two-year phase, modelled on observatories in other sectors, such as oceanography, which have successfully gathered, organized and updated data for researchers and practitioners in specific fields.

  • The main project partners would be the education faculties in eleven countries across Northern, West, Central, East and Southern Africa:
    Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Côte d’Ivoire, Kenya, Mali, Mozambique, the Republic of South Africa, Senegal and Uganda.
  • The Réseau ouest et centre africain de recherche en education (ROCARE) /Educational Research Network for West and Central Africa (ERNWCA) would be responsible for continent-wide project coordination.
  • The University of Montreal would be the technical partner, playing a key role in matters of science, technology and publication.
  • National Committees would approve the Observatory content, and an International Scientific Committee would oversee project evolution. The Observatory would be assessed in part by a statistical analysis of Internet data and an online survey.

Lessons learned would be documented and continuously incorporated as the project
unfolds.
