As an MIEE 2015, many thanks to the team that came to train us in December, 2014; that is Mr. Phil Oduor from Kenya and Mr. Victor Ngobeni from South Africa. Personally, I benefited a lot and learned that for ICT to be effective we need to have the basics of knowledge and equipments so as to function. However, I also learned from them that you can also improvise so as to effectively build and share knowledge. Above all, teaching using the Microsoft education applications as an effective and easy way of reaching out to learners.
However, for me and my school we are on the preparation stage. We just finished fixing the computers for our school lab and two other sister schools. We are now currently on setting up the computer lab as shown in the picture below.
Finally, we believe we are on track given the new curriculum in our country Zambia has made ICT and Computer studies compulsory. Thanks for the Microsoft educational applications that has made teaching and learning to be much easier and effective. I look forward to working with other educators interested in interacting and having activities with my pupils via video conferencing once we complete our Computer lab setup.
