The Jordan Education Initiative (JEI) was formed to support the Ministry of Education’s curricula reform process—the Education Reform for the Knowledge Economy (ERfKE) program—through the development of public-private partnerships to foster Information and Communication Technology (ICT)-enhanced learning strategies. EDC, with partners Research Triangle Institute and World Links Arab Region, is performing an evaluation of the JEI that will provide a detailed look at progress to date and information that will help the MOE bring effective strategies to scale. The EDC-led Evaluation of the Jordan Education Initiative focuses on four tasks: an impact measurement of ICT and e-learning activities in the classroom, an assessment of public-private partnership efficiency and benefits, a review of JEI hardware and software inputs, requirements and management, and an appraisal of the of the cost implications of ICT-related procurement, maintenance, and training, particularly for expansion of JEI activities to more schools.
