Project Summary, Objectives and Results
The Korean-Funds-In-Trust (KFIT) Project looked into piloting and demonstrating an institutional strategy in facilitating students’ ICT use through designing and facilitating student-centred ICT-supported activities, building capacity of teachers on ICT-pedagogy integration, and advocating the development of a whole-school support strategy on integrating ICT in Education. UNESCO-Bangkok strategized to build and strengthen partnerships between school teachers and teacher educators to promote peer coaching and follow-through support within the local contexts. It was hoped that the strengthened local trainer-teacher partnership will not only serve as a demonstration of effective facilitation modality for policy makers and as a project exit strategy for UNESCO in the short run but will also sustain practice-oriented professional development of both teacher educators and teachers in the long run.
Through the three-year Project, UNESCO Bangkok was able to:
(2) advocate leadership for ICT-Pedagogy integration in support of a whole-school support strategy and TEI-school partnerships,
(3) provide platforms to build educators’ communities of practices, and
(4) promote knowledge sharing and catalyse international cooperation.

Through partnerships with selected local Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) and various organizations, the Project team was able to conduct 13 country-level capacity building workshops and follow-through activities in 7 countries, 2 Regional Seminars on Innovative ICT Practices in Teaching and Learning, PBL Grant Competitions, and an international collaborative project involving 6 countries.
UNESCO-Bangkok also conducted regional trainers’ training workshops for its wider network of Resource Distribution Centres (RDCs) and TEIs to promote the benefits of effective ICT-Pedagogy Integration to more education officials and practitioners.
In order to strengthen the network of ICT in Education stakeholders, regional policy-level meetings were convened to engage education officials, policy-makers, and other key players in dialogue on various issues relating to ICT in education.
UNESCO-Tashkent used the funds to support the implementation of several activities towards building the capacity of teachers and supporting their effective use of ICT in teaching and learning, as follows:
(1) conduct of capacity building to master trainers on effective ICT-supported instructional design towards developing teaching and learning materials,
(2) translation of training curricula for “1:1 Computing” and “Project-Based Approach”, and
(3) translation of the national survey conducted to assess the effectives of the Teacher Training programme.
