The theoretical principles of Digital Seeds permeate its everyday implementation, and the program is structured into three sequential phases over a three year period.
In this phase, an initial diagnosis or baseline evaluation is conducted to define a starting point which allows for comparison over future moments during the program’s implementation in order to identify and measure progress, challenges and impacts.
In this phase, the Digital Seeds program advances into further implementation in three complementary components
In this period the two phases of the program that are developed during the first 3 years of implementation are evaluated. The evaluation measures results examines obstacles and challenges and seeks to learn from past experiences and decisions and to begin a new cycle of program sustainability
The process of Monitoring and Evaluation of the Digital Seeds Program is conceived as an integrated, permanent and complementary system. This process allows the evaluation of the objectives reached, the relationship with the processes according to each component of the program and the decision making process, which is informative and participative, in search of commitment from the different stakeholders and continuous improvement.
The methodology is designed to recognized quantitative and qualitative achievements over the changes the teachers and students adopt, as they continue to develop in the new educational surroundings. The key indicators are related with innovation in pedagogical practice and the development of skills of students in reading, writing and math, as well as critical thinking
