Country Profile Report - Mozambique - Study on the Use of ICT in Education and Remote Learning during Crises

This country profile forms the initial stage of a mixed methods data collection process employed to gather secondary data for the ICT in Education project. This first stage of the study entails a careful review of secondary documents gathered from a range of sources including public government items dealing with the country’s economic and social, legal framework, ICT infrastructure, the availability of ICT tools within the country’s education sector system strategy as well as teachers and students’ capabilities.

The development of the country profile is based on a review of secondary literary sources that provides an initial profile that offers a baseline and frame of reference for understanding the key issues, for the country’s experiences, priorities and challenges regarding ICT and remote learning strategy specifically as has been accelerated by the COVID-19 experience. The literature sources assist in identifying information gaps that will inform the second phase of the study which involves a primary data collection process. To this end, the country profiles inform the development of instruments as well as provide a backdrop for the interpretation of the data collection comprising surveys and focus interviews to be conducted in the second phase of the study.
