Course Description

Help African teachers use active learning and ICT in the classroom

Major changes are needed in African schools to raise achievement and cope with rapidly increasing student numbers. Learner-centred approaches, improved internet connectivity and the recent UNESCO ICT competency framework provide opportunities to do this.

This online course will help those who work with or train teachers in Africa make these changes happen. You’ll find out how to incorporate open educational resources (OERs) into teacher education, and help teachers use active learning and ICT.

This course is aimed at anyone who works with or trains pre-service or in-service teachers in Africa, including teacher educators, headteachers, education officers, lecturers, tutors, and teachers working together to provide peer-support. You’ll learn with The Open University’s TESSA network, which has provided free, digital resources to African teachers since 2008.

The course was relevant to the present situation( era of technology advancement). Collaboration will be eased because of computer skills acquired.TESSA OER will also help learners who are in rural areas if they are downloaded, printed and prepared as hard copies. Great thanks go to TESSA Lead Team , Kris Stutchbury in Particular.
