ANNEX 2.5.3 School Selection and Phased Implementation
When deploying technologies to schools, it is also necessary to analyse how best to achieve a balance between equity and effectiveness. Deploying ICTs in different types of pilot schools will generate lessons on what and how technologies best fit into the different educational contexts, and how to increase ICT use at different school levels.
A phased implementation of school connectivity will also ensure that the implementation process is manageable and the development of best practices and lessons learned is gradual. It will also provide opportunities for monitoring and evaluation, so that the policy can be revised and fine-tuned.
