Rwanda Govt. adopts OLPC curriculum policy

Views: 427

The Government of Rwanda is planning to digitalise primary and secondary school curriculums based on the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) plan, which aims to provide each student with a laptop computer.

Rwanda is participating in the OLPC roll-out program, which will be extended to all primary school children within five years. The government has undertaken this initiative to transform from the traditional chalk-and-blackboard methodology to ICT used methodology. Rwanda's ICT adviser is currently in India in order to adopt that country's digital science content as the two countries have similar curriculums. Last year, Rwanda Government has signed a deal with OLPC to provide laptops to schools. Under the deal, OLPC would provide laptops and support to fully test its concept at no cost to Rwanda.
