Independence Through Techonology

Investing in teacher training is one of the many ways we are working to improve the quality of education at our schools. In order to build our teachers’ computer literacy, Jenna Thompsen, RVCV’s English as a Second Language teacher, has designed and launched computer classes for a group of teachers at Gyetighi Primary School. Teachers are learning basic computer vocabulary, how to use a trackpad on a laptop, typing skills, and how to navigate Microsoft Word and Excel.

With their new computer skills, teachers will be able to create their own attendance sheets, exams, and schedules, freeing up time to develop innovative lesson plans and access online education tools like TabLab.

We need more laptops in order to expand our program! If you have a gently used laptop you’re willing to donate, please contact Jenna at education@tanzanianchildrensfund.org for more information.
