Technology Integration in Education Programme
In light of the coronavirus pandemic and our witnessing first-hand how education grinds to a halt when Indonesia is faced with natural or man-made disasters, the Foundation created the Technology Integration in Education Programme (TIEP) in 2020 to mitigate the negative impact of such events while improving the long-term resiliency of educational systems in the country.
The TIEP seeks to holistically address the challenges of remote or online learning and in general the effective integration of technology in education. The five main factors that impede quality remote learning and which we provide solutions for are the following: (1) adequate hardware (mobile tablets), (2) connectivity (free WiFi and/or internet quota), (3) free and appropriate educational software, (4) technical training for principals and teachers in using hardware and software, and (5) pedagogical training on integrating inquiry based learning with technology.
So far 958 tablets managed by proper mobile device management systems and educational software have been delivered to schools, 907 students and teachers have access to free and stable internet, while over 8,495 teachers and students have had access to in-depth technical and pedagogic training on integrating technology and education.
