Towards a framework for the use of ICT in teacher training in Africa.

The paper argues that six fundamental principles of good practice must be addressed for ICT in education programmes to be effective: a shift from an emphasis on "education for ICT" to the use of "ICT for education"; an integration of ICT practice within the whole curriculum; a need for integration between pre-service and in-service teacher training; a need for the development of relevant and locally produced content; a need for appropriate educational partnerships; and an emphasis on the development of sustainable costing models. The paper concludes with a framework for action to deliver the very real benefits of ICT for teacher training in Africa. Open Learning: The Journal of Open and Distance Education, 20(2), 113-129.
