Digitalization in teaching and education in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda and the United Republic of Tanzania
This report summarizes the findings of two sets of studies on digitalization in teaching and education in Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda and the United Republic of Tanzania. The first set of studies was launched in February 2020 to capture the changes taking place in the education sector in relation to digitalization, including challenges, best practices and the impacts on the teaching profession. The declaration of the COVID-19 outbreak as a pandemic in March 2020 resulted in calls for the rapid and widespread uptake of technology in the delivery of education. With education systems accelerating efforts in response to the crisis, in August 2020, follow-up studies were launched in the countries to document these efforts and the implications for the teaching profession, as well as long-term strategies and plans.
