Insufficiencies in Ugandan schools

What we want

We want to contribute to an innovation of school physics teaching in Uganda:

How we work

Guidelines for our work

We want to create content that is based on the everyday experience of African students, be it technology or nature.

We begin where our students already are and lead them to a discovery and development of their own capacities.

We try to minimize theoretical teachings and foster practical activities.

We use lab materials that are locally available

We use the computer and the internet as medium of distribution, print copies can be drawn if needed.

Our platform is WikiEducator.

We are rooted in the community values of WikiEducator, such as free content: We use a CC-BY-SA license

We are working in an open process, everyone who likes to join us is welcome.

We try to get financial support from donor agencies.

We pursue purely educational purposes.
