Can Third World teachers and students get to the top of education technology with least facilities?

 

Your Name and Title:   Mrs. Maha Hassan

School, Library, or Organization Name:  Arab Academy for Training Technology


     Co-Presenter Name(s):   None


     Country from Which You Will Present:   Egypt


     Language in Which You Will Present:    English


     Target Audience (such as primary school teachers, high school administrators,   students etc.):   Head of English Depts. and English teachers
     Short Session Description (one line):

How can we technologically upgrade third world teachers and students with minimal facilities?!


     Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

   A number of years ago, I attended a session by an American teacher who was shocked to know that she had to teach in a remote village in a poor third world country with no mobiles, no internet connections and no electricity after 5 pm.!!

   This session made me realize how much are we obliged to develop our society and spread globally. It's a responsibility that no one can refute especially if you have the ability to participate in!!

    I came up with an initiative that I started applying in a school in a poor district of our capital. To my surprise, the idea was almost rejected?! Yet I came to ask myself:

    1. How can I manoeuvre to find a way out?!

    2. Who can I start with?!

    3. Where shall I start?!

    4. What tools do I have in hand?!

    5. What about the students?!

 I started.........It worked! .......... I am still working on it !........... Would you like to know what happened?! ............. Come and join me on this session !!!
