Improving literacy and numeracy in Primary Education

HealthNeed Uganda in partnership with connect 4 change (C4C) is implementing education sector based project.

The project is on the intervention that addresses the key problem of low level of literacy and numeracy among pupils in 8 primary schools in Serere district, Teso region.

The Improving literacy and numeracy in Primary Education (ITELE for ICT project) shall intervene to support teachers in lesson planning and scheming for large size classrooms (into relevant teaching aids with integration of local materials). The project shall facilitate the pupils in schools to make available ICT generated messages to the community through drama and public exhibitions. This project initially will be piloted for one year (2012) with lessons documented and shared for scaling up. In this first phase, 20 teachers from 8 schools shall be trained in computer related skills and knowledge and subsequently supported to develop schemes and lessons plans. The 20 teachers shall be further trained on the use of ICT instructional and communications materials. The project shall develop ICT instructional and communication materials for use among the teachers/pupils in the lower classes i.e. P.1-P.3 It is expected that over 3124 pupils (P.1 to P.3) from 8 schools will benefit from this project through improved literacy and numeracy skills. Funded by IICD/EDUKANS.
