    In many cases, teachers see technology as integral to improving education and want to use it. The challenge is that many of them do not get a chance to participate in teacher training that impart skills on technology integration in teaching and learning. at MwalimuHub ( https://mwalimuhub.ac.tz/), in Tanzania, we organised a teacher training for 3 days in Morogoro Region from March 29-31, 2021. The objective was to introduce teachers to 21st Century skills and how to promote each; and imparting technology integration skills in their lesson plans. At the end of the last day, they received their certificate.

    EQUIPPING SCHOOL TEACHERS WITH ICT INTEGRATION SKILLS IN TANZANIA

    For two days, November 6-7, 2020, MwalimuHub organised a teacher training workshop to help them integrate some technology tools in teaching their specific subjects. 28 teachers came from 6 secondary schools that are in Morogoro Municipality in Tanzania. On the first Day, school teachers were introduced to different educational technology tools and the basics of creating engaging PowerPoint presentations. On the second day, teachers worked on integrating the learnt tech tools in their own lesson plans for a 40-minute lesson they teach from their different subjects.

    At the end of the workshop, I had a chance to have a focus group discussion on how teachers have benefited from the training and how they are going to implement what they have learnt as they go back to their schools. Responses are encouraging.

    I am working on developing an effective teacher training Model based on cascade Model that will help teachers who have attended such workshops to be able to train others in their schools and adjacent schools.

    Whenever you can hear of the opportunity to build capacity of school teachers on technology integration, please let us know. We can work together to reach Target 4.C of SDG4. This will make us achieve The Africa We Want.

    Online courses have been one of the ways recently used to train teachers and to improve their teaching practices. How you design the modules and how you orchestrate the course matter a lot.

    The rewarding part is when they share some really amazing stories on how they are making changes in their own ways after going through some modules in an online course to transform them to the 21st Century. When schools are closed due to #covid19, online courses would be helpful. Teachers are now reflecting on the experiences they had in the online course which ended recently.

    REACHING SCHOOL TEACHERS IN THE TIMES OF COVID-19 OUTBREAK

    While schools in Tanzania and elsewhere are closed for a number of weeks due to #covid19outbreak, teachers are #workingfromhome in many ways. I invited some teachers online to share with them the opportunities that lie infornt of them in this time of the outbreak. But I started with a question to know how they are moving on with the holiday. Responses were surprising and interesting.

    Qn: What are you doing at home now when the schools are closed because of this Corona Pandemic?

    Some responses:
    >"I am preparing online quizzes and sharing with my students"
    >"Just preparing for the situation to be cool. It was not planned so, just waiting for a school to open and proceed with teaching"
    >"Am trying to provide some information on on the prevailing situation of Corona pandemic"

    Our Live session was taken using Jitsi and Facebook Live ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/962691860459226/)

    How is the situation in your countries?

    To effectively integrate technology in teaching their subjects, teachers need to be trained on how to develop technology-enabled lesson plans. As they manage to develop their lesson plans, introduce them to some educational technology tools so that they can make sense of what they have been trained on. When that is achieved, let the groups do microteaching sessions so that they can realize all they have learnt on a short teaching session.

    This was a teacher training workshop held in Mwanza, Tanzania from January 13-17, 2020. It was aimed at training teachers on how they can effectively integrate technology in teaching their subjects. They were introduced on technology-enhanced lesson plans, and educational technology tools including Mentimeter, Padlet and Windows Movie Maker.

    How can we help school teachers better integrate technology in their teaching practices?

    For some years, research outputs have continued to report teachers' continuing difficulties integrating technology into classroom learning. There are many reasons to this, however, for teachers who are motivated to learn more about how technology can be used to improve their teaching and learning, it is important to note a few points:
    1. The training program needs to focus on the core competencies needed to teach a topic.
    2. Show how the technology will achieve the targeted learning objective(s)
    3. Include examples from specific topics they teach.
    4. Include more activities where they get to make immediate practice of what they learn.
