The SA project will look at providing workshops for educators on ICT use and implementation throughout various curricula. We will be working with our colleagues in townships near Cape Town. As many rural schools are now receiving donated computers and get connected to the Internet, they are becoming increasingly frustrated with the added administration and lack of skills to effectively implement and integrate computer use in their schools.
Educators from Canada and abroad will deliver workshops to discuss and train administrators and educators on the issues around computer use and integration and seek to create relationships between schools in North America and South Africa for mutual learning on global issues and mentoring.
We also will be working to build capacity within a local NGO, Edunova, to develop trainers and implementation models that will be put into practice in the interim.
