Working Group Teaching Computer Basics (TCB)
All around the world, there are students who never had the opportunity to learn how to use a computer. This is caused by a lack of materials in their schools and a lack of knowledge of their teachers. The TCB working group wants to change that by providing material to schools and training teachers.
Our primary task is to support all projects which have this goal. Since most of the project consist of training teachers to give ICT lessons by themselves, one big task is to gather all the teaching materials we used in our projects, and keep on inproving them based on feedback of finished projects. Also, we gather other methods frequently used by our group, for example the collection and transportation of the laptops we use for our workshops.
Since our projects do not end with the end of our stay in the project country, we look after finished projects to guarantee sustainability. We support our project partners when there's a technical problem and we demand regular reports about the state of the projects. All of this helps us make sure that our projects have a sustainable impact.
By doing all of that, and by providing each new TCB project with our gathered knowledge, we hope to improve the TCB concept bit by bit with every project.
Do you have an old laptop lying around at home and want to give it a new purpose? Then you can just donate it to the WG TCB, and we will use it in one of our projects. The minimal requirements for our laptops are a processor with a 1 GHz clock speed, 1 GB main memory and 50 GB of hard disk space. A working battery would be nice too, but is not necessary. If your laptop meets these requirements and you want to donate it to us, just contact us by this E-Mail: ed.goet@edneps-bct
TCB is always happy to hear from interested people! Don't hesitate to reach out for us: ed.goet@bct-gw
