Curriculum for Students training:

  • Minimum skills set, workbook page 32
  • Who should train the students: Th teachers (all teachers, one class at a time, teacher-student ratio of 4-5:1 is good)
  • When are they trained: immediately after teacher training, during deployment. Teachers train students as part of their own training.
  • How long: 3 days (after school sessions of 2-3 hours each) minimum, or 2 full days. A week would be best.

Note that students will rapidly learn and teach each other. They will then be able to train teachers. This should be encouraged.

Parents training

Parents training will ake place in evening sessions, lasting maybe 1 hour. The basic curriculum is to go through basic operation of the laptops and try a few activities. The children will help them further.
