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 ?
Hello the children and staff at Dial Diop School, Dakar. To be true, I have to also include this photo of their interactive white board (when the board itself was actually sheets of white paper stuck to the wall).
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.
