Fully support schools that are ready to achieve higher levels of ICT use in education by introducing more recognition schemes and conducting further research on developing and prototyping pedagogical models. 3. Develop schools' capacity within the framework of autonomy to take full ownership of their schools’ ICT implementation. 4. Strengthen the integration of ICT in the curriculum and assessment by focusing on areas of strategic importance and needs and developing partnership models to resource the schools. Additional points:MP II consolidated and built on the achievements of the first Masterplan, and Continued to provide the overall direction on how schools could harness the possibilities offered by IT for learning. 3.
