Egypt’s National Strategic Plan for Education Reform is designed to deliver high-quality education to all citizens. Its key elements include access and participation, curriculum and learning assessment, textbooks and learning materials and a quality improvement strategy. One important area is greater emphasis on the learning of the English language. To assess how this might be achieved, the Ministry of Education sanctioned a computer-learning pilot program, in collaboration with the British Council and Intel, in a school based just outside of Giza, a suburb of Cairo. The pilot was based on Intel®-powered classmate PCs pre-loaded with English language learning software from the British Council.

Strategic Objectives
• Education for all: Egypt’s National Strategic Plan for Pre-University Education Reform is designed to ensure high-quality levels of education for all Egyptian citizens
• English language learning: The strategy has many components, one of which is greater emphasis on the learning of English

First Response
• Pilot project: The Ministry of Education sanctioned a pilot in the Al-Nadha Experimental School to establish the efficacy of computer-based language learning
• Working together: The pilot was run by Intel in conjunction with the British Council which was familiar with both the challenges and opportunities
• In the classroom: Intel-powered classmate PCs, pre-loaded with materials devised from the British Council’s Learn English Kids* website, were introduced into classroom.
