TILO was implemented by Creative Associates and its partners Paltech, Keys to Effective Learning and Seward International in cooperation with the Egypt Ministry of Education (MOE) the Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (MCIT), the private sector, schools, and communities across 13 Governorates in Egypt. 20 Paltech staff members in Egypt performed a wide range of functions, including the Director of Technology Partnerships and TILO Smart Schools, Technology Network Manager, Database and e-Learning Manager, Monitoring and Evaluation Manager and Coordinator, a Technology Specialist and Technology Coordinators in 13 Governorates.
Paltech corporate management of staff in a remote location was accomplished through frequent contact with Paltech employees, the Director of Technology Partnerships, and the Financial Analyst. These efforts included: weekly status review calls, periodic site visits to Egypt, quarterly progress reports, monthly invoice reviews and collaborative preparation of periodic budget updates. Paltech’s Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) team developed a comprehensive framework designed to measure project performance and progress. Our Manager in Egypt was responsible for managing all monitoring and evaluation data collection, analysis and reporting, as well as coordinating with the project’s M&E external consultant on data gathering and processing.
Our staff fostered public-private partnerships with corporations and local entities to support program activities and outcomes. We supported capacity building assistance to MOE technology development centers in rolling out the TILO model in expansion schools. Our staff members installed technology packages in schools, designed databased, developed e-courses, and collected and analyzed data.
