See TeacherMate in action in Rwanda

Here’s a portrait of TeacherMate in action.

An organization called Edify, which says its mission is to “improve and expand sustainable affordable Christ-centered education in the developing world,” is using TeacherMate in a school in Rwanda.

The Imena Preparatory School has been using TeacherMate since June.

Gates Bryant, Edify’s director of education partnerships, recently sent us this update:

“TeacherMate has been an integral tool for setting up learning-centers within the classroom – effectively driving down the teacher:student ratio and providing a structure for more individual/small group attention.  We are cautiously optimistic about the pilot at this point and are looking forward to seeing post-test results in November. “

Edify produced this terrific video to show what’s happening at the Imena school:

Edify is now training teachers to use TeacherMate in two schools in Ghana.  It hopes to expand to more schools in Ghana and to start a TeacherMate pilot in the Dominican Republic.
