When you don’t have access to technology in your school, either through it not being a priority or through lack of funding, you have to be a TICE-less teacher and there are still a lot of them around. There is a lot of talk of the Digital Age and how everyone should have access to computers – but what about those who don’t ? When, as in classes in the schools I see in Africa, you don’t have tablets or ipods or even a regular reliable internet connection in the classroom, or you don’t have a laminator to make your card games or a colour printer to make things attractive, what can you do ?

In this section, you will find various ideas and suggestions for TICE-less teaching. it is not an official term but one I invented for my session on the subject when in Dakar in January 2015. It pleases me and I hope, gets the idea across. This section will evolve with time. Hope you find it useful.
