I am school teacher working in a rural, girls secondary school located in Karatu district. After stumbling across RACHEL on the internet I persuaded the school to purchase one (1) device. So last year I got a Sep 2016 edition RACHEL-Plus.
The reception has been good, despite its few challenges in as far as implementing Tanzania curriculum. We have a computer lab with laptops so getting students to use at least once a week isn’t a problem. Otherwise it is always on in the staff-room for teachers to access via mobile phones and their personal computers.
I’d like to meet other users in Tanzania, lets share how we can make and implement content that is specific for TZ syllabus and how to address problems with regards to internet connectivity. Internet for me is becoming a challenge, the area is adequately served with very good 3G service but I cannot find a way around getting the connection into the RACHEL device. And that has been frustrating since I really want to update the device to Jan 2017 edition.
