Abstract

This study was commissioned by SchoolNet Africa (SNA) in partnership with the Commonwealth of Learning (COL), the International Institute for Communication and Development (IICD) and the Open Society Initiative of Southern Africa (OSISA). It is the most extensive examination to date of teacher training in information and communication technology (ICT) in African countries at both the pre-service and inservice levels. Through documentary review, interviews and discussions with a broad range of stakeholders and service providers involved in the field of ICT training for African teachers, this report has identified and listed as many of the ICT courses and programmes available to African teachers as possible. A broad range of these courses and programmes has been evaluated in more detail in order to highlight the obstacles and challenges to ICT integration in teacher training in Africa. This has informed some recommendations for strategic interventions at a national level to aid in moving forward with ICT integration by and for African teachers.
