  • Infrastructure, including the access to internet and digital devices
  • Teachers’ competencies with digital tools and best practices
  • Instruction focusing on the appropriate and creative use of digital technology
  • Individual learners' application of digital skills

Learning solutions

Learning solutions assist schools, teachers and learners in achieving their goals

  • Digital platforms for management of learning and education at classroom, school administration and whole system level
  • Professional development for educators, delivered both digitally and in-person
  • Learning materials, content, and applications used at the students' level to improve educational outcomes

Educational Ecosystems

Educational Ecosystems consist of  

  • Educators and learners, educational stakeholders, community-members

An educational ecosystem enriched by digitalisation weaves technological components throughout for its learners and educators alike.
