An Evaluation of the Integration of m-Learning in TRAC+ (Total Reading Approach in Cambodia Plus) Project to Enhance the Literacy of Early Grade Students in Cambodia

Abstract

The Total Reading Approach for Children Plus (TRAC+) Project is a system of interventions to improve early grade literacy in Cambodia including new teaching and learning materials, a mobile learning game called Anh Khmer, assessment protocols for benchmarking reading, literacy coaching for teachers, peer tutoring and parental engagement. TRAC+ is currently being implemented in 140 public primary schools in five provinces in Cambodia.

This evaluation research seeks to answer the question: “How and to what extent does the integration of m-learning in TRAC+ enhance the literacy of early grade students?”

The research will contribute to the body of knowledge on the effectiveness, sustainability and scalability of m-learning integrated into TRAC+ in the Cambodian primary school context. Equity and efficiency issues will also be examined.

This project is co-funded by All Children Reading: A Grand Challenge for Development (ACR GCD).
