Evaluation processes themselves become more holistic, moving away from studies that provide reasonably certain but limited data, to a broader, richer view. Taking a view of a curriculum that includes participation in a community of practice involves looking at aspects of ICTs in education that consider developments in technology, changes in learning and teaching practice, individual and organisational learning and so on. This is not an easy task. Studies may need to become longitudinal, which will require funders to invest in longer-term initiatives, so that influences, or hypothesised influences, of the technologies may be investigated over time.
For this reason, an institutional mechanism had to be established to promote the ICTs in schools and to test their usefulness in enhancing school education. This was the rationale for setting up SchoolNet projects in Africa as Acacia sought to test models in differing contexts. During its first three-year phase, Acacia promoted the start-up of SchoolNet projects in nine countries in Africa: Angola, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, Senegal, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Uganda. Acacia further promoted partnerships with regional SchoolNet initiatives, such as the WorLD programme, and specifically worked with WorLD in Mozambique, South Africa, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
In some countries projects focus on training for the implementation and sustainability of ICT-based interventions in education. Some see preservice training as essential, such as the revised national policy on education in Botswana and the aims of SchoolNet Namibia (IDRC 2000:2), while others consider in-service training the appropriate response. : 5). : 6).
