What teachers want and need.

Teacher using CyberSmart Digital Learning Platform

This teacher is sharing pictures and videos of animals at a nearby wildlife refuge to support his lesson. Last year,  he might have tried to draw chalk pictures or ask his students to imagine what he was describing. But when the right technology is available he eagerly grabbed the opportunity to enrich his teaching and capture the attention of his students.

The problem is not the teachers. It’s the politicians and donor community that get in the way to stifle innovation. The CyberSmart Learning Platform has proven  — beyond a doubt — that affordable and massively scalable classroom learning with the latest technologies is possible today. Even in rural schools like this without electricity.

P.S. Why are the walls pink? See our January 16, 2019 post.
