Mwanahamisi Kahindi is an ICT teacher and the ICT club patron at Ganze Girls School in Coast Province, Kenya. She writes:“I taught in a traditional classroom and always tried to use technology. However, the technology and training provided by Camara Education and Dell Technologies improved my teaching skills to align with the technology. At the school, we have successfully started setting up the ICT Club and the computers provided have excellent ICT professional development. Our students have grown academically by working with the equipment. The ICT Club continues to grow and succeed in this school. Students can view both online and offline club activities on the computers and I provide them with more stuff for more information and assign them with activities. The completed activities can be monitored and give immediate feedback. We take a short review period to make sure all the Club members are mastering the concepts and then move on to ICT-based learning in individual, small and whole group activities using the information and technology presented. Thank you for the STEM STEPS PROJECT towards positive futures.” ... See MoreSee Less

Tech gives the quietest student a voice - More testimony from our ongoing project in KenyaPurity Neema, 19, says “When I joined the ICT club, I was kind of scared about technology because I thought I would mess up and look dumb. My teacher developed an Individualised Technology Education Plan which outlined some goals for me. We started with easy technologies, added some frequencies that I would use and now I am using all the technology like all the other students. I’m not scared of learning new things anymore and the skills and technologies I’m learning are looking awesome on my Studies. I get to learn and play using technology every day! My school is so cool! Thank you Camara and Dell Technologies for upgrading the lab and supporting the clubs” ... See MoreSee Less

Participants in our Kenyan project in partnership with Dell Technologies share their experiences.Selina is an 18-year-old Form 4 student who likes to explore and socialise with other students. She is a member of the ICT club in the school and her dream is to pass her final KCSE exam so as to get a good chance to enrol in a good college or university in the future with the hope of achieving her dream of becoming a Programmer. “STEM STEPS has helped a lot of students in my school to understand different topics in different subjects.” explains Selina. Because she is proficient in using the Camara portal learning platform, Selina has been selected to demonstrate to her fellow students how to access and retrieve information from the different subject modules.Through the online W3School, a freemium educational website for learning coding online that is available on Camara’s learning platform, she has been exploring resources about programming. ‘’All I have to do is type in the word ‘programming’ in the search bar and wait for the results,'’ she says. “The best part about being a school ICT club member is that you can be creative and express yourself. The Club excites and makes me feel happy and I must work hard to achieve my dream of becoming a programmer”. ... See MoreSee Less
