Rationale

Rationale

  • Jordan is:

    • A model case for the Arab world.

    • The most advanced in the development of educational data and the use of ICT in education in the region.

    • A Participant in major international assessments.

  • Jordan made a major commitment to education reform.

  • The use of ICT in education is one of the main foci.

  • ICT in education is a new field and there are many unknown factors.

  • Monitoring and evaluation of the progress throughout the course of the reform is needed.

  • Benchmarking is a way of determining if the plan has been implemented effectively.


What does the research say about the impact of ict on education outcomes

What Does the Research Say About the Impact of ICT on Education Outcomes?

  • The research on ICT in education suggest mixed results on achievement of overall learning outcomes.

  • Analyses of International tests suggest that provision of computers alone has no effect on learning (e.g., TIMSS, PISA, Becta).

  • Learning achievement is a complex process involving human factors, organizational structures, infrastructure, etc.

  • ICT designed and used to develop specific skills (e.g., problem solving) shows some effect on acquisition of the skills but this kind of use is still very limited.

  • Teachers’ use and knowledge of ICT in teaching indicates some positive effect on achievement of learning outcomes.


Use of ict in education policies in jordan

Use of ICT in Education Policies in Jordan

  • Education Vision, Goals, Priority

  • In 1999 His Majesty King Abdullah II articulated his vision that the economic future of Jordan would be found through successful participation in the global knowledge economy, and more particularly in the value-added information technology industries.

  • Jordan is developing a national education strategy from pre-primary to secondary education.

  • The new education sector policy was identified

  • Jordan will commit $380 million to the Education Reform for Knowledge Economy (ERfKE) program in which ICT in education is a core component

  • ERfKE aims to close skill gaps and improve the quality of education


Use of ict in education policies in jordan1

Use of ICT in Education Policies in Jordan

  • Jordan’s human development indicators look pretty good in terms of educational attainment.

  • Under ERfKE, schools will be connected.

  • The student-computer ratio is improving.

  • Many initiatives are on-going in various areas such as networking, curriculum development and teacher training.

  • These activities have to come together to transform teaching and learning to create the knowledge society and economy.

  • It is essential to monitor and evaluate the progress.

SUMMARY OF OUTPUTS HAVE BEEN ACHIEVED

High

Low

Outputs

Issues

  • More than 80 schools have the right technology in place to teach math online.

  • All 100 DS expected to be technology ready to deploy all e-curricula being developed by end of this

  • Model becomes more complex as more curricula is piloted next year

In-classroom technology

  • Full development and launch of world class Math Curriculum

  • Substantial commitments and progress in other subjects

    • Science and ICT e-Curricula in pre-pilot stage

    • Arabic and EFL on schedule for completion

    • Civics, History, and Geography curricula in line for development with some contributions already committed

  • E-Curricula development on schedule and exceeding initial expectations (e.g., 5 subjects instead of 4)

E-curricula

  • Core team of 34 “master trainers” formed within MOE

  • Training of Math teachers for e-Curriculum usage and principals for change management in 6 Discovery Schools

  • Initial steps to coordinate MOE ICT-related training programs

  • Necessary training carried out but wider reach hampered by delays in technology deployment and coordination challenges

Training


The hashemite kingdom of jordan

Integration with MOE

Partner communication

THREE MAIN ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE ADDRESSED

  • Ensure that learnings are shared between e-Curricula developers and that e-Curricula end products are compatible with each other

  • Ensure that in-classroom technologies deployed to schools support e-Curricula

  • Coordinate roll-out of training to teachers to coincide with receipt of technologies and e-Curricula

    • Long delays between training and practice can significantly reduce value

Coordination between Discovery School programs

  • Continue to coordinate JEI with wider ERfKE program through meetings, working groups, potential assignment of MOE personnel to PMO

  • Develop strategy for assessing different technology options in terms of suitability for national roll-out

  • Develop overall communications strategy to keep partners fully updated on progress and objectives, e.g.,

    • Produce world-class website

    • Send regular updates to partners

    • Brief Executive Steering Committee on progress and issues

  • Assign resources to execute, e.g., dedicated Communications Officer


The hashemite kingdom of jordan

STEPS TAKEN TO SUPPORT AND COORDINATE IMPLEMENTATION OF PROGRAMS IN DISCOVERY SCHOOLS

Suggested improvement opportunities

Complexity

  • Develop single master plan, with details on individual Discovery Schools, to facilitate synchronized rollout

Coordination

  • Create effective Deployment Working Group, consisting of MoE staff, PMO and other key partners, to take responsibility per deployment

    • Allocate percent of time of MoE individuals to JEI where necessary

    • Hold regular meetings

Capacity

  • Consider hiring private sector skills into MoE

  • Redouble efforts to engage existing or new JEI partners with expertise (e.g., IT consultancies) to assist MoE deployment

Communications

  • PMO to work with MoE to establish clear key performance indicators and data collection process

  • PMO to develop communications strategy for school system
