LUANDA – ANGOLAN youths, educators and parents are set to benefit from a continent-wide initiative a global enterprise application software firm has initiated to spread digital literacy across Africa.

Over the next few days, the Southern African country will play host to a series of train-the-trainer (TTT) workshops during the official build-up to SAP Africa Code Week (ACW). ACW is set for December.

Spearheaded by SAP and founded in 2015, ACW is a continent-wide initiative to simplify the face of software coding for Africa’s youth.

In Angola, partners, including; Cod Cod Codet, the Ministry of Education in Angola, the American Embassy, the French Embassy, Vivre En Angola’s website and community, the Lycée Alioune Blondin Leye, the ONG Mulemba, Instituto Superior Técnico de Angola (ISTA), The University of Agostinho Neto have partnered for the TTT workshops.

Of particular interest is the collaboration with the school Dom Bosco, an innovative, adaptive programme working with young disadvantaged children living in urban areas in Luanda.

This week’s TTT workshops will provide a platform for the transfer of skills and knowledge from ‘Master Instructors’ to local parents, teachers and educators, enabling them to become the next expert coding teachers who can train potential students in their communities.

TTT workshops will be conducted in Portuguese and will take place in Luanda, the capital city, until Wednesday at the school Dom Bosco, in de municipe de Sambizanga.

The workshops are open to all school teachers and any other parties interested in becoming part of ACW.

Attendees will receive 90 minutes of software coding training based on MIT’s Scratch system, a USB with course notes in Portuguese with Scratch pre-loaded and a training certificate upon completion.

The objective is for participants to take the skillset back to their communities and host sessions for children during the official ACW event in October 15-23.

Aimed at local school teachers, the TTT workshops will seek to train hundreds of Angola participants.

The objective is to empower as many people as possible in the continent, with the long-term goal to empower more than 200,000 teachers reaching in excess of five million children and youth over the next ten years.

  3. I am a big fan of this cereal-series. I always thought they should have one called “Raspberry Zombie.” It would have green- and purple-colored marshmallows, and when you added the milk you’d get green and purple colored swirls in your bowl.

  4. Thanks so much for the kid words, I am so glad you found my site! Feel free to print out the post and take it with you. I wish you a wonderful vacation!! If you are interested in getting some prints, let me know. If the ones you want are not on my adamallegro.smugmug.com website, I can make them available for you. Thanks for catching that!! I wrote that post pretty late after I got back to Italy so I probably made more mistakes than that!! Thanks for visiting the site Carol!

  5. Thanks Jank. Your experience is helpful, since I don’t have a lot of my own to draw on yet. I’ve been toying with doing a walk between runnin’ days, and I think I’ll go ahead and start doing that now. Hopefully this’ll help get me past the “hump” I’ve been feeling lately.

  6. I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours nowadays, but I never found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely worth sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the net shall be a lot more useful than ever before. “Dreams have as much influence as actions.” by Stephane Mallarme.

  11. Au fait, pour ceux qui n’aiment pas : n’oubliez pas que le pire est à venir : Henry Neu est en train de réfléchir à la pochette du single…oh my god, j’ai presque failli l’oublier lui  Paradis Réanimé

  12. Fantastic points! My family cat Charlie (who is sadly no longer with us) was blind in one eye and ended up having a glass eye inserted, so I know exactly how you feel. He was the best cat ever though, so loveable and fluffy!

  13. Article I defines the requirement for Congress/Senate as 7 or 9 years a US Citizen, respectively.Article II defines the requirement for the Presidency as a natural born citizen AND 14 years a RESIDENT (not US Citizen).Why the difference? Because though all natural born citizens as a subcategory of US Citizens, are "Citizens" —- not all US Citizens are natural born citizens.When asked to differentiate between a Citizen and a Natural Born Citizen, the anti-constitutionalists ALWAYS fail.
