Promoting public health and environment in Rwandan Schools

Open Learning Exchange Rwanda (OLE Rwanda), in partnership with the Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions (SPIDER), is implementing a project on the use of ICTs to support access to quality learning resources for public health and environment in Schools. It started in May 2013 and ends in October 2014. It supports 20 disadvantaged schools in 3 districts of Rwanda by providing open content for Public Health (PH) and Environment in response to curricula changes introduced since 2007. It raises awareness and promotes global and local issues related to public health and environment in schools; it also supports the development and acquisition of open content, teacher training and ICTs integration in Schools. This project shall focus on three different issues which are:
a) Capacity building (training) for Teachers and Students through workshops on issues related to public health and environment
b) Digital open content development/acquisition and empowerment through project based learning activities and clubs
c) Use of ICTs to support access to open digital content through online library and stand-alone servers.
