Effectiveness Evaluation and Programme Redesign 

EdTech Ventures undertakes evaluation of national and regional educational technology initiatives and projects to assess the effectiveness of various types of implementation. Our evaluation process includes visits to schools, interviews with representative samples from all stakeholder groups and students, and the design and analysis of surveys, reviews and questionnaires. The detailed analysis of this data is used to make recommendations to our clients on program effectiveness, and redesign or readjustment recommended in order to ensure the best possible use and integration of technology results in improved learning outcomes for all students, and provides value for money. These recommendations are based on international best practices but are adapted to maximise outcomes whatever the economic and social situation of the client’s jurisdiction.
