Re: Request for selection of Primary school teachers to attend Digital Literacy training
The Govenment of Rwanda signed a credit financing agreement with World Bank, to support Rwanda’s
Quality Basic Education for the Human Capital Development project. The overall objective of the project
is to improve teacher competency, student retention and learning in basic education in Rwanda. One of its
components is “Enhancing teacher effectiveness for improved student learning”. Under this component
there is a subcomponent “Improve teachers’ English language and digital literacy”. The objective of this
subcomponent is to improve teachers English language proficiency and digital literacy through e-learning.
In this regard, the Rwanda Basic Education Board (REB) is planning to train and equip primary school
teachers with digital literacy skills. This is not only to empower teachers to effectively use technology in
the classroom but, also to enable teachers to proficiently use the Microsoft products at their disposal.
The activity of training the teachers will be done in 5 phases whereby 2,100 teachers will be trained in
phase I, 2,100 teachers in phase II, 2, 100 in phase III, 2,100 teachers in Phase IV and 2,042 in phase V.
Each phase will be scheduled for 4 days face to face sessions and 3 days for the online sessions. Both
