Sarah invited to sit on IJEDICT Review Board

Sarah Jones recently received news that she had been invited to sit on the review board of the International Journal of Education and Development using ICT (IJEDICT). Sarah, who has been a reviewer on this journal for several years, was invited by the Chief Editor Prof. Stewart Marshall, who added that the invitation was “in recognition of [her] exceptional service on the Peer Review Panel of IJEDICT.”
IJEDICT aims to strengthen links between research and practice in ICT in education and development in hitherto less developed parts of the world, e.g., developing countries (especially small states), and rural and remote regions of developed countries.”

Sarah has been interested in developing world educational contexts since 1995, when she first worked in Uganda on behalf of the Tropical Health and Education Trust to help set up the Medical School at Mbarara University of Science & Technology. Whilst working there, she became involved in local schools and set up the East African Schools Trust. The central aim was to link students and schools between East Africa and the UK. Many of the schools still have this link today, including Wolfreton School (where Sarah is also a school governor) in the East Riding of Yorkshire, which is linked with Rushanje School in South West Uganda.
