ELLN Digital – Technology-Supported Teacher Professional Development on Early Language, Literacy and Numeracy for K-3 Teachers: An Evaluation (Philippines)

Abstract

ELLN Digital (ELLND) is a project being implemented in the Philippines by FIT-ED with funding from USAID/Manila through its Philippine-American Fund. The aim of this project is to build and test a cost-effective, flexible, scalable and sustainable technology-supported TPD model for early literacy and numeracy and across the K to 12 curriculum. The evaluation of ELLND is co-funded with USAID/Manila.

The main aim of this Sub-Project is to determine the effectiveness of ELLND as a TPD program. Specifically, it will try to describe and measure—quantitatively and qualitatively— the impact of ELLND on participants’ content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, perspectives and practice. The evaluation is expected to be completed by June 2017.

This project is co-funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through their Philippine-American Fund.
