Using Technology to Improve Education for Marginalised Girls: Lessons in implementation from the Girls’ Education Challenge

Country: Kenya, Uganda, Ghana | Topic Area: Girls’ Education & Technology

Project summary

The study aims to examine the factors that have facilitated the effective delivery of EdTech interventions and contributed to successful outcomes across the Girls Education Challenge (GEC) portfolio. It also aims to establish valuable lessons for optimising the implementation of future EdTech interventions for marginalised girls.

The study focuses on projects with EdTech components that have shown good or promising value for money. It covers both projects with EdTech solutions integrated from the outset, as well as projects that adopted EdTech components as part of their response to Covid-19 and associated school closures

The research adopts a mixed-methods approach, including assessing available project documentation and datasets and conducting in-depth interviews with key informants.
