Detailed description of project Back

In 2021, UNICEF has launched the platform Learning Passport in Sudan to provide local students and teachers with updated curriculum in a digital format and contribute to elearning development in the country.

The overall purpose of this consultancy is to support the integration of elearning into formal learning in Sudan. The specific objectives are to develop, implement, and assess a pedagogical framework that supports the integration of ICT into the formal education system through scripted lessons.

Based on education materials on Learning Passport, the expert team will design scripted lessons for teachers for the following grades and subjects – Arabic, English, Math, and Science for Grades 4 to 6, and further support implementation of developed lessons in five regions – East Darfur, Central Darfur, Kassala, South Kordofan and Khartoum. After that, evaluation of whether scripted instruction, integrated with the elearning tool, can result in improved learning outcomes and teaching practices, will be done.

The project serves as a pilot initiative with the intention to further integrate the practice of scripted lessons in other schools and regions of Sudan, if the method proves its effectiveness.
