Assess within a digital environment
Apply Assessment of Learning, Assessment as Learning and Assessment for Learning, using different digital technologies. Our training programme equips educators with the skills to identify and use technology tools administer both formative and summative assessments.
Our education programmes have been designed for educators with the least digital skills and for environments with limited digital tools. Our experts have worked with educators in developing countries to ensure the programmes are practical and can be applied with the least resources. Our programmes have been successfully rolled out in public schools across rural communities.
Education planning is a key starting point in the integration of ICTs in teaching & learning. Education administrators play a huge role in this planning process. We support education administrators in developing digital education transformation policy and implementation guides. We offer this service to individual schools, groups of schools, clusters, districts and education ministries.
'Before attending this program, my teaching was not running well. There were different methods I did not use yet. After completing this digital skills program, my teaching was changed. I now use new methodologies in my classes and implement Kahoot and Google Forms when I prepare assessments for the learners. The learners also use the padlet when they are discussing the given topic. It helped me know how I can control my emotions whether in class or out of school. After applying the skills I got from this program, I see that the students' productivity has increased'
Marie-Grace UWURUKUNDO, Software development and computer system architecture at RUNDA TSS in Kamonyi District
“The students are happy to learn
because of frequent use of videos. It
makes them enjoy coming to class.
Because of the skills I got from that
Digital Skills Program, I created a
YouTube channel (ICT TO ALL by
JOSEPHA). Where I teach ICT courses.
I send links to my channel links to
the students to help them study and do assessments.
Most of the time, I also use the projector in the
computer lab doing practices.”
