Abstract [en]

Proficiency in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) skills is now regarded as important as basic reading and writing skills. This technology is designed to enhance the flow of information and communication; it’s a means to access information and knowledge. It opens up education more widely, and creates a valuable opportunity for all those involved in education to reconsider their practices, and in so doing to develop a more reflective approach to their educational activities. Capacity building in the use of ICT for education aims at improving literacy and teacher trainings with regard to ICT services.

To make the best use of ICT tools, teachers must understand the relevance, usefulness and usability of those tools. Teachers need to be computer literate themselves and be confident in the use of ICT in order to understand what ICT can do to enhance their own development and to enrich the learning experience of their students. In this aspect, we aim at training teachers in computer skills and later incorporation of ICT into their teaching functions.

This research is an effort to equip Lugoba Secondary School (LSS) teachers with the knowledge, understanding and skills of ICT and when and how to use ICT in their teaching. Teachers need to be enabled and empowered to evaluate the effects of using new technologies in their teaching, and then to begin to develop their own communities of practice to assist them more effectively in enabling their students to enhance their learning opportunities.
