Title
A Theory of Change for Teachers towards a Technology-Enhanced Education System in Bangladesh
Abstract
In November 2020, UNICEF requested support from EdTech Hub to help the Government of Bangladesh improve the reach, effectiveness, and inclusiveness of the programme of activities proposed in the government’s Covid-19 Response and Recovery Plan: Education Sector (⇡Ministry of Primary and Mass Education, 2020). At that time, this plan led to a wide and diverse range of programmes initiated by the government and other stakeholders. As a result, EdTech Hub worked with the government and other stakeholders to rapidly create A Theory of Change (TOC) for a technology-enhanced education system (⇡Clark-Wilson et al., 2021). While acknowledging that parents, caregivers, teachers, school, and community leaders are also key stakeholders, the first TOC focused on learners as, ultimately, the desired impacts of a technology-enhanced education system are directed towards learners’ educational outcomes. One recommendation of the earlier working paper was that a TOC should also be developed that focused on teachers as key agents in the development of a technology-enhanced education system for the country. The process to develop this second TOC comprised a desktop review, interviews, and two stakeholder consultation workshops. The resulting teacher-centred TOC draws on existing theory and practice as well as stakeholders’ assumptions of how the evolving technology-enhanced teacher professional development offer might achieve its goals — and what conditions need to be in place to achieve this. This working paper documents and explains the teacher-centred TOC. An output of the EdTech Hub, https://edtechhub.org
