Integrating ICT in Instructional Design ? Meeting the Needs of a Distributed Learning Environment at Zimbabwe Government Correspondence School (ZGCS)

Dr Elisha Chamunorwa Kujeke, Prof Kennedy Andrew Thomas

The backbone of all educational innovations in many countries today rests on how much technology has been integrated to enhance curriculum delivery processes. What is differing is the rate and challenges of integrating technology at Government Correspondence School (ZGCS), in Zimbabwe. As a discussion paper it focused on issues of connectivity, benefits, challenges and tentative solutions of financing Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) integration not only in schools. The historical picture of ZGCS is exciting as it spans for over 80 years since its inception offering distance education to marginalised pupils and adults. Focus group discussions with key informants managed to provide the much needed data on major reasons for slow uptake of technology. The discussion made exciting recommendations on different ways of funding ICT integration.
