CASE STUDY: SOLAR POWER IN MALAWI (TEACHER CPD & PRImary workshop) 2018
Helping to prepare teachers participating in the Norwich-Dedza Partnership for their exchange trip to Malawi, using my experience from being part of the process a few years earlier. After teachers returned to the UK with their Malawian counterparts in June, I hosted a workshop as part of a carousel of activities for Primary schools taking place in conference run by the Norwich-Dedza Partnership. The workshops involved using pictures taken by myself on my trip to Malawi, some games and use of solar-powered gadgets to help young children understand how solar energy works.
