WAAW Foundation focus on STEM and digital educational solutions such as eLearning courses and blended learning programmes to equip teachers in Africa with many opportunities that will make them digital educators.
Teacher training is so important because teachers need to be given regular training opportunities in order to stay at the top of their game.
Even the best teachers will begin to lag behind if they don’t continue to strive for excellence.
Training STEM Teachers is a critical component in ensuring that African youth and especially girls are trained in STEM. We focus on GENDER-SENSITIVE curriculum so teachers can help guide and recruit more girls in STEM and prevent gender bias and stereotypes in their classes. We train STEM Secondary Teachers across Africa.
For STEM secondary educators in Africa, we offer our engaging, rigorous teacher professional development model which provides tools to empower teachers and their students and transform the classroom into a collaboration space where STEM content comes to life.
We emphasize hands-on learning away from the blackboard, and Africa-focused integrated curriculum that helps teachers break down the rote memorization methodologies which are prevalent in the African educational system and which stifles creativity
The aim of this program is to equip educators with Digital literacy skills that can enable learning both remotely and within the classroom. Introducing them with tech skills that makes learning and teaching fun and interactive with digital skills such as Adobe Spark, Google forms, Nearpod, Google classroom, Microsoft word, excel, Paddlet, Quizizz Powerpoint etc…
Our teacher training program ties in with our Glocal Classroom/ Level Up Village program. Participation in the teacher training workshop however, does NOT GUARANTEE LUV participation. Participation in this exclusive Glocal Classroom program requires selection as a master teacher and 1 – 2 days of additional training on LUV curriculum.
Our selection criteria ensures that LUV teachers MUST have internet access and show strong commitment to hosting on-going stem clubs, and dedication to completing their paired classes as they cannot leave their US/UK partner teachers hanging. Trained teachers who are selected for this program will be guaranteed LUV classes year round. If selected teachers are unstable, disappoint their partner teachers or do not complete their classes, they are immediately removed from the LUV program.
