Urgent appeal for 'Phonics by Phone in Ghana' project

Post by Debbie Hepplewhite » Tue Jul 07, 2015 8:50 pm

This is an urgent appeal for support for the 'Phonics by Phone in Ghana' project which you can read about here:

http://www.phonicsinternational.com/for ... .php?t=908

This is an ambitious and inspirational project with implications for development in other remote places around the world.

I do hope people will be interested and may even be moved to offer some urgent financial and pen-pal support if possible.

Many thanks.

Debbie

Wow that is an ambitious project.

Have you seen other similar projects. There is software called One Billion that has been used sucessfully to each maths in Malawi with IPads. In Malawi classes are huge and it can be hard for a teacher to know whether a particular child has understood a concept. The children get to spend half an hour a day on the IPads

I feel that One Billion has an excellent funding model. They sell their software to British parents and schools and use the profits to maintain the software. Their software is sucessful for teaching maths because its very hands on and interactive. It really tests understanding every step of the way. I realise that your project is slightly different in that your project is desgined to train teachers rather than children. The One Billion project will have also over come obsticles like lack of electricty and supporting teachers
