We are having great improvements in one of our computer labs located in Ghana, 5 of our students have achieved 10,000 words on NightZookeeper!
Victor is having online calls on weekly basis with the computer lab in Ghana, all the students are writing on NightZookeeper every day and they are also practing reading and pronunciation on the Zoom calls with Victor.
We recently bought backpacks and dictionaries as rewards for the students, and we plan to continue these reading calls and in the future start doing the commonsense training with the students.
We are looking to do MangoJam coding in the fall in the Philippines teaching the current NightZooKeeper kids to do coding with $15.00 motherboards. We will be doing this at the Boracay Global Academy and the public schools.
We plan to increase the number of computers and buy a new modem for the computer lab as there was some reshuffling after the typhoon at Christmas and the power cables were separated from the laptops.
We currently have children using both the NightZooKeeper mission accounts and NightZooKeeper writing program.
In many cases the children have never been on a computer before so they are getting familiar with not only using the keyboard and the position of the letters on the keyboard but also the functionality.
Some kids have excelled passed the 30 lessons and others are pacing themselves along with Digital Citizenship lessons. "
