Abstract

This report presents the key findings, and recommendations of the MERL Working Group for the Tech4RED following rigorous fieldwork between 2013 and 2015 and intense engagement with relevant stakeholders. Specifically, this report focuses on the issues which need to be considered when (a) introducing context-appropriate multiple interventions in rural contexts; (b) assessing the impact of technology and developing evidence-based strategies for technology integration that contributes to teaching and learning gains. Also provided in this report are specific recommendations for further research and replication of the initiative in similar contexts.
