WTI-9G Teaching in Tanzania
Professor Nancy Janus
Education is the key to development for women and children throughout the world. This course in Tanzania will allow Eckerd students with an interest in teaching to work directly in the training of Tanzanian teachers and secondary students in the use of computer technology. Students will work with teachers in Iringa, Tanzania, helping them to use the Internet for research, activities, illustrations, etc., as they bring their teaching into the 21st century. Students will also work directly with middle and high school students in their classrooms to develop skills of computer literacy. You will work closely with Tanzanians, getting direct and intimate exposure to African culture. You will also have the opportunity of experiencing the beauty of a country filled with the best that nature has to offer in her wilderness game parks. As a break from teaching, we will experience a two-day safari. A high level of physical fitness is required.
