Developed an ICT-in-Education Toolkit that provides education policy makers, planners and practitioners with a set of tools to assist them in the process of harnessing the potential of ICTs to meet educational goals and targets efficiently and effectively.

  • Identification of educational areas for ICT intervention and formulation of corresponding ICT-in-education policies
  • Planning for implementation of infrastructure, hardware, teaching/learning materials, and personnel training
  • Planning for ICT-enhanced content
  • Consolidating implementation plans and their financial and managerial implications into one master plan
  • Assessment of implementation, effectiveness and impact of ICT interventions and subsequent adjustments and follow-up actions

The Toolkit was developed in partnership with UNESCO, World Bank (infoDev) and AED. Wadi D. Haddad is the architect and principal author. Sonjara provided technological architecture and software development.

DESIGN AND PRODUCTION OF MULTIMEDIA INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS

Designed and supervised a multi-country project in Latin America, the International Virtual Education Network (IVEN) for the Enhancement of Science and Mathematics Learning. The project was financed by the Inter-American Development Bank and executed by Knowledge Enterprise. It was launched in 1999 and is presently being implemented. The backbone of the project is the development of online multimedia modules for the whole science and math program for the last two years of secondary schools by local multidisciplinary teams trained by Knowledge Enterprise. It involved: the setting of learning standards, translation of standards into teaching/learning activities, production and testing of multimedia curricular materials, staff training, development of an online distribution system, application of modules in pilot schools, learning achievement assessment, and program evaluation.
