Interactive Whiteboards for Africa

Friday, April 23rd, 2010 | IWBs

It is with great pleasure that I can let you know that the book Interactive Whiteboards for Africa – 101 Questions was launched last week.  The book is based on postings that appeared on this blog, enhanced by many of your comments (thanks for that!).  See the catalogue for a full listing of all the chapters.

The book will be made available in hard copy format to teachers who do not have access to the internet.  Kind donors made the printing of several thousand copies possible.

Interactive Whiteboards for Africa is not a training manual – it is an advocacy tool that can be used to let teachers know it is cool to use interactive whiteboards.

Congratulations on publishing your book…

Having read some of your blog on the subject, I know your book will be full of useful information.

Congratulations again! I see you have writer’s blog. I think this is quite a clever way to write a book. The critique from a number of “non-experts” are free and this is before the experts (editors) edit it. Also, the “non- experts” also give a realistic feel to the book. I think it will be of use if people will read it and take the advice to empower themselves.

Just being curious, but are you starting another book?

Mark, yes, there was a block for a while – I had some family trauma, demanding much of my attention, but I am back on track! You are so right … this is the perfect way to write a book. Nobody has all the wisdom on a subject – blogging allows you to put ideas out there and let others with insight in the topic (or with lots of experience) add their comments. In this way one can publish the collective wisdom of a number of people. And yes, I am working on a few other ideas at present!

I started reading the book last night, thank you Kobus, I can see there is still a need for hard copies and such a pleasant and easy to read format. Everyone should order their copies now, it is definitely worth while reading and information, well research and a well balanced view.
