Peru CAPTIC (Comunidades que Aprenden con Apoyo de Tecnologías de Informacíon y de Comunicaciónes): Strengthening Pedagogic Practices through the Application of ICTs

The Peru CAPTIC program introduced technology-based instructional components into 12 primary schools and four teacher training centers in Peru. Program activities (1) work to develop a culture of using communication tools for e-learning; (2) build communities of teaching practice in participating schools; and (3) enhance teaching and learning through problem-based collaborative projects. Community outreach campaigns, public-private partnerships, workshops on gender equity, and a comprehensive sustainability plan supported and strengthened these pilot activities. Special emphasis was given to outreach initiatives that enhanced quality of life and strengthened leadership skills, especially for girls.
