Teacher and Student Comments About Learning Tasks

Some teachers of Misanga primary school joined the volunteers in organizing pupils
into small groups of three. Two of the teachers were also willing to join the class and learn. On our departure, teachers requested pupils to organize a lesson for them.

Pupils were amazed on seeing their images and hearing their voices  on how they sung in record activity. They enjoyed the lessons especially  on record activity. Pupils felt happy because they have learned something to do with computer. They said that they wished to be taught on daily basis.

Pupils said that they are now literate and not illiterate like villagers.
