Outcomes

Our scope of work included a baseline study, follow-up and supported the monitoring and learning of the E3 programme from 2018 to present.

The team has implemented a developmental evaluation approach to test and refine the E3 Theory of Change.  In addition, we support E3 to determine whether embedding active learning pedagogies in the South African education system leads to long-lasting shifts in learner mindsets. The findings from the evaluation will inform the national scale up of the programme. E3 project commenced in 2018 and is currently active.

The South African National Department of Planning, Monitoring & Evaluation embarked on developing an integrated data system in 2019. We led the development of the business plan by driving a comprehensive and strategic process.

The process included 14 stakeholder interviews/focus group discussions, reviewing all key strategies and documents and conducting 2 design workshops. With a team of technical experts a document was developed to specify the recommended business and technical requirements of the integrated data system.

We have developed a data management solution that provides programmes with intelligence to achieve impact, called ImpactBoard.

In 2020, we worked with the Nelson Mandela Foundation and Department of Social Development to develop a dashboard to track ECD registration and identify where support was needed, and visualize progress across the country, province and district level. In addition, the platform was configured in web and mobile app formats to support data collection on registration for about 20 000 ECD practitioners. This project is currently in progress.

Data Innovators has rapidly ramped up in the ECD sector and added value to technical work such as the ECD registration framework in its early days. Its contribution has added value to the ECD Function Shift, ECD Census and ECD Employment Stimulus Relief Fund.
