Strengthening Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (SIPSE) project

The MasterCard Foundation and GESCI partnership project will pilot the innovative use of ICTs to train secondary school teachers to improve their pedagogical skills and ability to integrate ICT into their teaching practice.

Strengthening Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (SIPSE) project

Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (PSIPSE) is a collaborative of donors and Foundations that have come together to spur innovations and new and improved ways of teaching and learning at the secondary education level. As part of the PSIPSE initiative GESCI is assisting secondary school teachers in Kenya and Tanzania to inspire, motivate and help their students to better perform in the critical subject areas of: SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGLISH, and MATHEMATICS (STEM).

The Global e-Schools and Communities Initiative (GESCI), in collaboration with The MasterCard Foundation and the governments of Kenya and Tanzania came together to spur innovation through the integrated use of technology in teaching and learning at secondary education level under the Strengthening Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (SIPSE) project. GESCI will address poor student performance in STEM subjects by equipping teachers to provide a student-centered, participative and ICT- based approach to curriculum delivery. GESCI’s bespoke e-Learning platform is complemented by an m-learning application that increases access to content, making anytime, anywhere learning possible.
