Guiding questions

  • Which of the critical supports identified in this section could be addressed to improve project implementation?
  • Which organizations within the education system, such as district offi ces, teacher training colleges, or universities, can provide follow-up support for TPD in schools?
  • In what ways can existing ICT infrastructure, including mobile phones and radio, support follow-up for current or planned TPD?
  • Is the technical-support capacity for ICT-enabled TPD located primarily in the private sector, in government, or in schools? How can that capacity be augmented?
