Moi University wins bid to implement the Digital Literacy Programme

Moi University and Portuguese research and investing firm, JP SA Couto, will oversee the supply, installation and commissioning of the digital learning solution for schools in 26 counties. On the other hand, JKUAT together with its partner Positivo BGH will supply and install the laptops in 21 counties. They were part of the 10 companies that had been issued with the RFP documents on November 27, 2015. The Expression of Interest (EOI) proposals were opened on September 22, 2015 at the ICT Authority offices. In the opening, a total number of 25 companies/consortium successfully submitted their proposals by the deadline.

“This is a major milestone towards the implementation of the Digital Literacy Programme. We will now move to the proof of concept (POC) in 150 schools across the country,” said Robert Mugo, Acting ICT Authority CEO. The ICT Authority on Tuesday February 9, 2016 said it has achieved a major milestone towards the implementation of the Digital Literacy Programme.

The schools are distributed evenly across the 47 counties with three schools picked and representing an urban, peri-urban and rural school. The two winning suppliers will first demonstrate their ability by connecting 150 selected urban, peri-urban and rural schools across the 47 counties. An additional nine schools are allotted to Special Education Schools.

Moi University and JKUAT beat the Kenyatta University & BRCK Ltd/Guangzhou Institute of Technology consortium, the Multimedia University consortium which consists of Symphony Technologies Limited & Equity Holding Group together with Tsinghua TongFang co Ltd. Big technology firms such as Hewlett Packard which contested alone and Lenovo, which was in a group with Trans Business Machine, Specicom & Ensure Services lost the race. Huawei Technologies together with University of Nairobi also fell short of the set requirements. Also locked out of participation after failing to meet the targets is Dedan Kimathi University of Technology & Meru University of Science and Technology/Participatia Technologia.

The project is being implemented through a multi-agency approach that consists of the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, Ministry of Industrialization & Enterprise Development, Ministry of Energy and Petroleum, The National Treasury and the Office of the Attorney General.

The ICT Authority is the lead implementing agency for the programme. Other agencies include The Teacher Service Commission (TSC), Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD), Rural Electrification Authority (REA), Kenya Power, Kenya National Union of Teachers (KNUT) and Kenya Primary Schools Head Teachers Association (KEPSHA).

The key components of the programme are: Provision of content for digital learning, Provision of digital devices for learners and teachers, Capacity development for teacher and implementers, Establishment of local assembly for digital devices and related accessories and Broadband connectivity. The components have so far been delivered on schedule with the Interactive Digital Content for Standard one pupils being launched on December 15, 2015 by Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD). The content is available on a universal platform on link http://kicdinteractivecontent.ac.ke/. Additionally the Ministry of Energy recently announced that they have almost completed connecting power to schools.

A total of 66,000 teachers have been trained on digital literacy and are awaiting a refresher course in the next few weeks.

Moi University awarded Ksh 10m for Keiyo, Tugen Peace Pact project

Moi University’s Centre of Public Sector Reforms has been awarded a $100, 000 (Ksh10m) grant to conduct research on the peace pact among the communities of Keiyo and Tugen found in Rift Valley.

The goal of the project is to document the governing practices, social institutions, norms, values, process and context that bolsters peace and stability between the two Kenyan communities as an illustrative example from where learning on sustainable peace in sub-Saharan Africa can be drawn.

The grant was given by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) to the Centre of Public Sector Reforms (CPRS).

The Centre was established as a research, consultancy and extension wing of the department of History, Political Science and Public Administration following a Memorandum of Understanding between Moi University and Wareng Institute.

The project which is entitled “Learning from Peace; A case Study of Keiyo and Tugen (KETU) Peace Pact in Kenya; East Africa” will involve the full documentation of the KETU Peace Pact as a representative of all other approaches for achieving peace and as an example for best practice and learning from the peace processes in Kenya.

The documentation will include the narrative of aspects leading to cement of the pact, the norms and values that have been upheld since 1920 to date.

The project is an outcome of constant conflict between some societies while others are permanently at peace.

“As scholars, we are here to bring you knowledge despite us coming from different specialties. We shall be producing products and ideas that will benefit the whole world. Whatever happened between the Keiyo and the Tugen was a great achievement and other communities should know and learn from the experience,” said Prof. Richard Mibey, Moi University Vice Chancellor, who officiated the launch of the project on January 29, 2016 in Eldoret town.

Prof. Mibey added that the project will strengthen the University by being a resource of peace where people can come to talk peace.

“The project will bring to life the term ‘indigenous knowledge’ which generally refers to how members of a community perceive and understand their environment and resources, particularly the way they convert those resources through labour,” reiterated Dr. James Chelang’a, Centre for Public Sector Reforms chairman.

 

The research is expected to be complete by October 2017 and the end products will include audio-visual documentary and a research report that includes policy recommendations.
