Although we haven’t announced any news during the summer, we were not only travelling and relaxing but we were also working behind the scenes.
One major outcome is a proposal for a new project in Ghana with exciting local and Austrian partners, which we want to start later this year. The main objective of this project
“is to equip teachers in public schools with skills in internet research and presentation to support their teaching and learning process” [quote from our proposal]
By assisting teachers to use the internet, we think several aspects in education can be improved. This in turn makes not only the teachers, but the students and other stakeholders benefit. By teaching teachers, we are aiming for a multiplier effect and replication across the country.
We will publish more about the project and our partners (Ghana: Worlali Senyo, Charles Amega Selrom, Gameli Adzaho;Austria: Prof. Emerita Maragete Grimus) as soon as we’re finished planning and have concrete dates.
However, we will present the proposal on 1. September in Linz at the event “Mein Beitrag zum Wandel” at the “Create Your World” subfestival of “Festival Ars Electronica”.
We’re proud to get the chance to present there and I’m sure we’ll get to know many interested and interesting people.
