IT training & E-learning
The third objective for this foundation is to provide the youth of Tawergha with the necessities for development.
To accomplish this goal we will try to contact organizations willing to provide free training, education and access to resources and financial assistance.
Our own company will provide whatever we can share or spare and we hope our contacts at companies like Microsoft will contribute to this program.
Microsoft has established the Afrika Academy, an education platform leveraging both online and offline learning tools, to help Africans develop both technical and business skills for entrepreneurship and improved employability. Training through the Afrika Academy will be made available starting in March at no cost to recent university graduates, government leaders, and the Microsoft partner community.
Supported by Microsoft employees from around the world, the program will offer internships and placements with Microsoft and with the company’s thousands of partners across Africa. Microsoft is committed to helping millions of Africans obtain the skills for entrepreneurship and employability, and this is just the first step in that direction.
We'll try to connect with Development Projects like Samsung's Solar Powered Internet Schools Program which provides a technology-rich learning and teaching environment to classrooms across multiple countries in Africa.
The program focuses on the deployment of ICT Infrastructure like the E-board, the multi-purpose Printers and Note PCs - as well as comprehensively on infrastructure deployment, professional development of educators, content development and management, school administration and management as well as sharing best practices in the integration of ICTs in enhancing learning and teaching, in the classroom.
Addressing a common resource challenge faced by several rural African communities, they are piloting Solar-powered Internet Schools as part of the program.
The e-board allows for cross-group collaboration between and among educators and learners across geographical boundaries. It can embed the Note PC, run a video conferencing, access the internet, and connect to the Note PCs in the lab, all simultaneously, providing an amazing learning and teaching experience for the educators and learners.
