Teachers’ ICT Retooling Workshops are a series of 5-day residential training workshops supported by Uganda Communications Commission and coordinated my Uganda Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Sports intended to equip teachers with the skills and knowledge to effectively teach ICT in their schools.

Background: The introduction of Information Communication Technology for advanced level students suffered a setback especially in rural secondary schools because of lack of qualified instructors and computers.

To solve the problem of shortage of computers, the Ministry of Education and Sports (MoES), in conjunction with the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), through UCC’s Rural Communications Development Fund(RCDF) supported the establishment of ICT laboratories to enhance integration and penetration of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in secondary schools in Uganda.The ICT laboratories were installed in over 1,027 secondary schools and tertiary educational institutions. However, secondary schools that have ICT infrastructure do not adequately use it due to lack of skills and low ICT literacy levels of school managers, teachers and Students.

The availability of teachers who can integrate ICT in the teaching and learning in Ugandan secondary schools is very limited however the unskilled teachers and headteachers can be re-trained / retooled to acquire the necessary ICT skills to improve the teaching and learning. Through in-service training, teachers and School managers are provided with modern computer skills and others are completely re-tooled to become computer literate. This enables ICT integration in the teaching and learning. This is done by provision of the desired skills to the teachers who will turn integrate these skills through modern methods of teaching using E-platforms. The main Aim/objective of the project is to influence the integration of ICT in the teaching and learning in Secondary Schools in Uganda.

Expected results/outcomes

  • Improved methods of teaching and learning in secondary Schools using ICT tools.
  • Improved and increased means of sharing knowledge by teachers and students with the use of ICT.
  • Increased access to ICT resources by teachers, students and administrators.

Several ICT retooling workshops have been held in the recent years [ eg 2013, 2014,  and 2016] from the time ICT was introduced at A level as a subsidiary subject compulsory for some students.
