Mbale Secondary School ICT Club
The KAWA team delivered talks and engaged in conversations with some of the club members. Some of the students enthusiastically shared their learning project works that they already were embarking on.
The KAWA team handed to the club about 100 T-Shirts branded in UCC logos, and a pair of Samsung Galaxy tablets donated by UCC for implementing club activities.
The pilot project is UCC’s long-term commitment to supporting clubs in maintenance and basic repairs of computers and accessories in their respective schools.
However, KAWA’s mandate goes beyond maintenance and repair to building capacity in the participating learners to utilize ICT to leverage 21st-century learning practices and make ICT more relevant in their lives and education.
Key objectives outlined are:
• Building in the students the skills of using ICT more effectively and responsibly.
• Enabling creativity and innovation, critical thinking, and problem-solving mentality
• Being able to integrate ICT in mainstream disciplines, other clubs, and schools’ activities for learning purposes.
• Being able to purposefully network, collaborate, and work as a team.
• Empowering learners to address real issues affecting their communities and finding solutions to them through innovative learning projects.
• Developing a sense of ownership of and taking part in the maintenance of equipment of their respective ICT departments.
KAWA’s talk with the club learners encompassed the aims and objectives of the project, 21st-century challenges and opportunities that young people must equip themselves to face, and employability skills – hard and soft.
Clubs members were urged to act responsibly in interacting with their schools’ ICT properties and to guard them jealously. They were also urged to fully participate in Lab maintenance as a principal club learning activity.
Each of the club is expected to come up with at least one innovative learning activity. Outstanding clubs will be recognized for their efforts.
