Using computers to drive collaboration among students
By Veronica Nuwamanya - Computer Trainer
Students excited about their project
Schools recently took their break for term two and it’s a great opportunity to share our fun moments at schools throughout the term.
The term was filled with exciting activities for our students that ranged from creative writing, picture painting, working on puzzles and design projects.
We focused on building collaboration amongst students and supporting students discover how fun working together can be and how creative they can get when working in groups. Students were paired in groups and they worked on activities that called for contribution from each student.
Isaac, one of our ICT trainer shared this about his students;-
“When we introduced Easy Typing Puzzles ( one of the games on our emPower self teaching software for beginners) to primary four students at Kiyunga Islamic Primary School, they were so excited at first because they had started something new but after a few minutes, the giggles and smiles turned into silence and sad faces. One of the students said the game had really challenged them. After a while the students decided to pair themselves up to also challenge the computers. They were so happy this technique worked because everyone made a contribution. It was amazing to see children seeking each others’ support and how well they worked together."
