World Vision will support the NFBE Centres in capacity-building of teachers through trainings, and integration of Information Communications Technology (ICT) with the prescribed syllabus and course books for these centres. It will also provide psychosocial support to the children.
The ICT-based learning will be piloted in 10 NFBE Centres, providing an opportunity to compare the results of ICT-based learning with rest of the 10 non-ICT Centres, where such technology has not been provided.
Based on the findings of this intervention, further planning will be initiated, depending on the effectiveness of ICT in learning outcomes of children.
In order to enhance the effectiveness of the NFBE Centres for quality education, a joint monitoring support mechanism will be adopted by World Vision and LNFBE department.
