INNOVATION FOR INCLUSIVE DEVELOPMENT: MAPPING AND AUDITING THE USE OF ICTS IN THE SOUTH AFRICAN PRIMARY EDUCATION SYSTEM

Precious Hove, Sara Grobbelaar

Abstract


Inclusive education aims to identify and minimise barriers to learning and maximise learner participation in the education system. With a focus on the use of information and communication technologies in the South African primary education system, this study aims 1) to create a framework with which to evaluate the current state of ICT uptake across core functions for a school; 2) to audit the current state of innovation uptake; 3) to use the audit outcomes to identify challenges to the uptake of ICTs; and 4) to identify measures for facilitating an improved uptake of these innovations. The researchers conclude that a need exists for government to ensure consistent ICT uptake and use throughout the education system through a better implementation of standards, policies, and processes that facilitate technology uptake.
