dc.description.abstractThis article reports a study of primary teachers’ experiences of using digital technologies in rural primary schools in Nepal, particularly the training they received, the resources they can access, and the impact on their teaching approaches. Policy by the government of Nepal emphasises the need to develop ICT competencies and suggests the use of ICT will transform traditional models of teaching to ones that are student-centred. Teachers’ experiences indicated that to some extent the integration of digital technologies in instructional activities changed their role in the classroom, created a learner-friendly learning environment and improved aspects of their teaching. The study also found that there was often insufficient access to ICT in and outside the school premises, and that pre-service teacher education, as well as government-provided in-service training, does not cover the use of ICT in instructional activities. Rather provision of infrastructures and training in the use of digital devices is carried out by non-governmental organisations (NGOs). It is argued that for policy to be realised in practice, more sustainable and more comprehensive systems need to be developed to train teachers in ICT use and to provide them with necessary facilities.en_NZ
