Senegal: Oscar Tice 2013 Awarding Educational Communities in ICT Sector Today


Launched by USAID/EDB last december, the national contest “Oscar TICE 2013: 21st Century colleges and community daaras” (Muslim schools), is awarding its winners this Tuesday June 18th 2013 at the Grand Théâtre.

According to Guitèle NICOLEAU, head of project at USAID/EDB, the idea for the contest is to “gather all the middle education colleges so that they change the teaching culture by using new technologies. 21st century skills require such an integration.” USAID/EDB’s ambition is to favor students and teachers’ access to information and communication technologies as well as quality educational resources on the internet.

The award ceremony, which will be preceded by the EXPO TICE in the morning, aims at rewarding the creativity and commitment of an entire community for the realization of a 21st century college.
