Using technology to support teacher continuous professional development in Sierra Leone

Authors: Daniel Plaut, Iman Beoku-Betts and Rabia Tanweer

Quality education requires a strong teaching workforce. One of the most effective interventions in impacting learner achievement in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) is teacher education programmes. To this end, the Teaching Service Commission (TSC) in Sierra Leone is planning to roll out a tech-supported teacher continuous professional development (TCPD) programme to improve foundational literacy and numeracy teaching. 

To deal with the complexity associated with designing, testing, and scaling their TCPD programme, TSC has partnered with EdTech Hub. We are supporting them by deploying our sandbox approach which is designed to facilitate education implementers through uncertainty. Read lessons from our Sandbox in Sierra Leone on the EdTech Hub blog.

But right from the start, we have to dispense with the idea that the provision of education data automatically translates into more equitable and effective decisions. It does not. Context is everything and we've collected a list of resources to help navigate the world of Data for Decisions.   Read more...
Can technology be used to maximise the effectiveness of personalised learning and teaching at the right level of the student?
Author: Haani Mazari
Significant financial resources are being invested in a wide range of digital personalised learning (DPL) programmes, but there is no clear evidence on whether they are more effective as a complement or substitute to other learning content and how they might be used in low- and middle-income countries. If we can develop clear evidence on pedagogically appropriate, cost-effective DPL, we can influence how money is spent on personalised learning.  Read more...

EdTech Hub will be at the 2022 Transforming Education Summit (TES) on September 19, as co-lead on Action Track 4 (Digital learning and transformation) and co-hosting a session (Scaling Evidence-based EdTech In Kenya, Malawi, and Sierra Leone) on September 17th Solutions Day.
