Twenty teachers from Ilala School District attended professional development classes in technology to enhance the role of informational technology in student learning and achievement. Funded by a grant from Reading Around the World Literacy Initiative (RAWLI), the technology training will provide support to increase proficiency in technology for teachers as schools in Ilala School District introduce a Digital Age Learning Environment to students.
Reading Around the World Literacy Initiative (RAWLI) is pleased to announce the launch of Swahili to English Bubble Bath, an educational game to assist Swahili speaking children in learning English.
The app, a collaboration with Overpass Ltd. of the U.K., was developed by game designer, Eric Wroolie. The app is available in both Apple and Android versions and available free of charge at both the iTunes store and on Google Play.
“We are excited to launch this educational app to a worldwide marketplace,” said Carissa Mallory, Founder of RAWLI. “This will help teach English language to the Swahili speaker in the digital age.”
