Zambia Quality Education Services Through Technology (QUESTT) Project

The Zambia QUESTT Project improved the quality of basic education delivery systems and mitigated the impact of HIV/AIDS on children's educational experiences (both in and out of government schools). To accomplish these objectives, QUESTT led several initiatives to improve teacher practice through the integration of Interactive Radio Instruction (IRI) in government schools and technology-based interventions. These interventions included the use of video and cell phone communication for both in-service and preservice teacher support.
