Using our innovative Mobile Solar Computer Classroom and Digital Literacy Projects, we supplement Uganda’s education system by training students, teachers, and the general public to use computers and relevant digital tools. These trainings have three very distinct benefits.
The first and most obvious is that they are bringing the building blocks of computer literacy to thousands of school children every week.
The second is a strong, and already visible, ripple effect: students who are motivated by learning about computers are finding that they can use that same disciplined approach in their other studies.
Finally, the third benefit, students participate in a new world of learning that gives them power as individuals to take charge of their learning while exploring new things.
But there is a fourth benefit as well, teachers and community members explore how they can use technology to be more productive, connect to the world and learn new ways of doing things.
