UNESCO ICT CFT - English
The video will take you on a trip to explore the ICT Competency Framework for Teachers’ Harnessing OER (ICT CFT/OER) project. The journey starts with the UNESCO Communication and Information Sector, at UNESCO Headquarters, Paris, which launched the project in 2013, and coordinates it globally. The video then takes you through to site visits of the ICT CFT Network in South Africa and Egypt. The project reflects the different steps of the project, the decision making, teacher training then finally the use of these capacities in the classroom with the students.
The Mathew Goniwee School of Management and Governance (MGLSG), in South Africa has adopted the project and contextualized it to its own needs. A great number of trainings were organized all over the country and, as a result, more than 2000 teachers were trained on ICTs in nationally. The video will take you to Kgoro Ya Thuto School in Johannesburg where trained teachers are using ICTs with their students. The video then takes you to the American University in Cairo (AUC) in Egypt, where AUC, in collaboration with the the UNESCO Cairo, have been training teachers on the effective use of ICTs in the classroom, including through the development of OER –based teaching material. The project is growing with more countries joining the Network.
