IT is part of the curriculum of primary schools in Uganda, but many teachers, especially in rural areas, have never received any education or training in digital skills. How are they supposed to pass these on to their students? This is where we come in. With the financial support of the Foundations Eudim and North-South Bridges, we will make 50 teachers from Bukedea District digitally fit over a period of 6 months. In addition to IT basics, we will work with the Berlin-based policy agency Polyspektiv to motivate, guide and inspire the teachers to use digital tools in group work. In this way, we not only want to build up digital competence, but also strengthen the students’ and teachers’ understanding of democracy and their ability to reflect, discuss and form opinions.
