Project Description

According to the bank document, the proposed knowledge and support technical assistance (TA) will increase enhanced teaching, learning, and support systems and instructional resources using information and communication technology (ICT) to develop students'' core competencies and reduce rural- urban disparities in primary education in Gansu Province through policy advice, capacity development, and research.

The Government of the People's' Republic of China (PRC) has requested the TA from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to achieve high-quality and balanced primary education. The TA is included in ADB's' country operations business plan for the PRC, 2018- 2020. 

The TA will have three outputs to address outdated teaching, learning, and support systems and resources for the development of core competencies, especially in rural areas:

(i) existing teaching, learning, and support systems and resources and use of ICT in primary education assessed;

(ii) national and international good practices and lessons in building students'' core competencies and addressing rural- urban disparities in primary education through the use of ICT introduced; and

(iii) new or improved ICT-enabled teaching, learning, and support systems and resources in primary education piloted.

These outputs will result in the following outcome: enhanced ICT-enabled teaching, learning, and support systems and resources in primary education increased. The TA will be aligned with the following impact: high-quality and balanced primary education delivered.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
