Exploring the Landscape for Digital Education: Observations from Kenya, Nigeria, and Senegal
Digital learning is an increasingly important form of distance learning. Having the infrastructure, access to devices and digital literacy needed to make digital learning viable and equitably accessible will be crucial in the coming years. This report provides a digital landscape review for Kenya, Nigeria, and Senegal, examining the contextual factors that affect digital learning integration into education systems. The report also provides a series of actionable recommendations to support these countries’ efforts to make digital learning a viable option accessible to all children, including the most marginalized.
For each of the three countries, the report looks at:
- Information, communications, and technology (ICT) for education policies and plans to understand the landscape for technology in education and the government's priorities,
- Existing physical resources needed for implementing and integrating technology into education (technology infrastructure, access to and use of technology devices, software),
- Human resources and capacity (technological literacy, digital education pedagogical knowledge, and ICT-related teacher training efforts) and,
- Conclusions and recommendations.
