Currently am involved in open and distance learning whereby am digitizing life skills material.Life skills education is a new curriculum area that will be introduced to primary and secondary schools begining next year (2009). Hence, it is important that teachers get orientation in this area. Digitizing the training manual and availing it in open learning will certainly help to achieve this objective.
