The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

iMlango is a pioneering eLearning programme in Kenya that supports 150,000 students, in 205 schools. iMlango delivers ICT to improve learning outcomes, using mobile technology to record student attendance and has implemented a sophisticated data system capturing over 35m data records a year.
This presentation will share our experiences in dealing with big data, exploring our approach to treating real-time information and identifying meaningful trends, and shifting to predictive analytics. We are particularly interested in using this data to help identify social and environmental factors that impact on school performance, and determining how these levers might operate.
The presentation will reference iMlango real data and analytics. It will showcase how big data and analytics can be used to improve the management, planning and evaluation of current, and future education programmes.
The specific question that this presentation will aim to address: Can data systems help improve education development decision-making in allocating finite resources?
