Evaluation of Implementation of the Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) Schools ICT Labaratory Programme: A Sociotechnical Perspective

Conrad M. Mubaraka, Simon Bugaba & Achola Anne Rose

Ministry of Education and Sport in Uganda in pattern ship with Uganda Communication Commission (UCC) purchased computers and installed them in selected secondary schools in Uganda to help both students and surrounding communities in an effort to uplift IT literacy among Ugandan. It has since then been observed that a few interest groups like the army have been able to put this to use. The researchers set out to assess the infrastructure, security and other enabling condition using a cross sectional survey design on selected secondary schools from the four regions of Uganda. Findings showed a low level of usage due to lack of commitment by the entrusted officers, which is as a result of low pay and lack of proper training. The researchers thus recommend that training and incentives such as raised pay and allowances be enhanced.
