The UNICEF regional offices in sub-Saharan Africa commissioned the Innovation Unit, Aga Khan Education Services (AKES) and the Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) to lead a research project to inform the development of a UNICEF’s thinking on ICT for learning. The project built on previous work completed for AKES in which the team investigated learning technology stories from diverse contexts, including many that are complex and resource-constrained. For UNICEF, the team looked in particular at stories from the African continent, supplementing the AKES data set with new examples identified by UNICEF ESARO and WCARO. In particular, the research process was designed to answer the following questions: What is the role of ICT for learning to ensure effective and relevant learning outcomes? How can ICT for learning promote educational inclusion? What are other partners and organizations doing in ICT for learning? Who are the partners and donors to work with in the area of ICT for learning? What is UNICEF’s role in the ICT for learning space? This paper shares the key findings of the research project. It is supplemented by three sets of insights in relation to ICT for learning.
