On Monday, WEEMA began to implement our digital literacy project in two community-based kindergartens!
The schools selected for the digital literacy program, Hodo and Gaecha kindergartens in the Tembaro district, were built by the community to meet the needs of their children. Both were provided with tablets to serve a group of 240 kindergarten students who attend in two shifts.
The tablets function as an interactive workbook by supplementing lessons taught by the teacher. They are loaded with math, science, reading and art curriculum developed for each day of the school year.
Two students share each tablet and work together to complete the lesson or assignment. The photos reveal how this teaching method encourages peer-to-peer learning.
WEEMA is excited to bring innovative approaches to education, and can’t wait to see these kindergartners progress in their reading!
