Digital Agenda

Background
The Education Digital Agenda Strategy 2021 - 2025 provides a Rationale and Action  Plan for integrating ICT into teaching, learning, assessment, sports and administration five (5) years. This Strategy builds on other existing Strategies and plans developed by other complementary Sectors that include aspirations of ICT integration in education and sports. It takes cognizance of current education reforms that are underway in the education and sports system at all levels. The proposed interventions are designed to embed ICT more deeply across the system to enhance
the overall quality of Uganda Education and Sports.
The Education Digital Agenda Strategy 2021 - 2025 is aligned to the National Development Plan (NDP) II and NDP III which advocate for human capital development in the Sector leveraging on the ICT use and penetration resulting into improved quality learning outcome. In developing a sector-wide Strategy, an evidence-based and participatory approach was used to ensure all aspirations and needs of key stakeholders in the education and sports sector were catered for. Stakeholder engagement meetings were conducted to provide input into the situation analysis and also into the aspirations, focus areas, development and implementation mechanism.

In May 2020, the PS/ES constituted a technical committee to spearhead and fast track the development of the Education Digital Agenda (DA) and the ICT in Education Policy.
