Savoirs communs n°17 : «Digital services for education in Africa»

Sub-Saharan Africa, basic education, technologies and IT in schools are the core concerns of this work produced by Agence Française de Développement (AFD), Agence universitaire de la Francophonie(AUF), Orange and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

For three years now, we have come together as an informal working group, along with other operators and businesses, to consider the potential of technology for improving the quality of basic education in Africa. This Savoirs communs gives a digest of our exchanges. It also reflects the initiatives and projects we have undertaken together or whose goals we share: experiments on the use of tablets in colleges in Niger, the use of mobile phones in the continuing training of primary teachers in Madagascar, assessing the standard competences teachers need in the field of technology, and participation in the annual UNESCO Mobile Learning Week.
