After a gap of two years, we are delighted to be presenting the TIESEA project at BETT Asia in Bangkok, Thailand on 11th October 2022.
Technology has played a key part in maintaining the continuity of education in region: during the past two years of disruption’ some solutions and tech intervention has been more successful than others. The TIESEA project team have conducted diagnostic assessments and analyses in each of the four project countries of: Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Viet Nam. On the basis of the reports from these analyses, the project is currently implementing pilot studies in each country focusing on local needs and capacity building.
The webinar will outline the local situation, country by country, and seek to demonstrate how the project interventions can overcome obstacles in order to maximise the contribution that EdTech can make to both students’ achievement and the quality of learning in the region. There will also be leading industry experts and senior government leaders to share their experiences.

As some of you may remember, last year we held several events fundraising for the Peter Tabichi Foundation, to support the build of new classrooms for students at the Keriko School in Nakuru, Kenya.
We are excited to announce that construction has begun! Last week a location was chosen as the most suitable site for the construction work to take place, along with the installation of a borehole water pump. The water pump will provide access to clean water in the school and help in other areas such as handwashing, catering services, gardening, and provision of water to the local community – water scarcity has been one of the major challenges in the village!
We are delighted to have been selected to deliver this important project for the Sri Lanka Government (Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), SMOER and Ministry of Education) in partnership with UNICEF. Throughout this pandemic we have seen that innovative and agile teachers have been able to support learners, whatever the technology. We are delighted to be working with the Government to help develop teacher capacity and digital skills in Sri Lanka, to support learners using a range of technology solutions.
Aminda James from the Information and Technology Agency for Sri Lanka commented:
To transform Education we need to transform Educators !!
The Digital Education team is excited to kick off the digital transformation of teachers in collaboration with UNICEF and the State Ministry of Education Reforms (SMOER) and the implementation partner LP+ from Learning Possibilities Limited
The initiative will ensure the creation of a comprehensive, detailed and well-sequenced online training module (ability to use offline as well) in both Sinhala and Tamil for teachers of government schools on distance/blended teaching with a mix of high tech and low-tech modalities relevant to Sri Lanka, inclusive of student assessment and pedagogy in digital learning. This will lead to a program where there will a master training program for 700 master trainers based on the above modules developed for teachers. The initiative will also focus on an online/offline parental awareness creation in both Sinhala and Tamil on the role of parents in supporting home-based/blended learning inclusive of online safety
This initiative is also in line with the Digital Education Policy that is being Jointly Developed by Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) and SMOER and Ministry of Education.
