Programmes ICT for Education

Improving the quality of education by giving access to Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is internationally recognized as a vital tool for improving the quality of education and to provide life-long learning skills for school students. ICT also helps to enhance school administration and develop better teachers through improved teaching and learning methodologies.

ROTA (a member of the Qatar Foundation), in partnership with Qatar Petroleum as funding partner and Titian Foundation as its implementing partner, launched its first pilot project bringing the potential of ICT to 13 schools in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

The overall goal of the ICT Programme is to:

  • Provide access or improve schools’ ICT by providing hardware and software, as well as multi-media devices and an internet connection.
  • Develop the necessary skills to efficiently use ICT to support and improve teaching and learning.
  • Develop projects and activities enabling teachers and students to use ICT for education, as well as to connect and work with other schools and communities.

A series of training, both Master Trainer and Participant Level (teachers), have also been held in partnership with Intel Indonesia and Infest—the programme’s training providers, over a two-year period.

Partnerships and Looking Forward

Covid-19 has changed the way in which teachers conducts their teaching. Technology provides an important way forward and ICT is, therefore, more important than ever. It can help schools in the villages who do not normally have access to technology enabling their students to do online learning and mandatory computer-based examinations.

Aside from delivering a full-fledged ICT Programme, Titian can also help you make donations of ICT-related equipment as we work with schools in remote areas. Click here to see how you can help.
