Learning Technology Advisor
"Learn to recognize opportunities and have the courage to seize them"
I enjoy learning and helping others doing so. I am an Instructional Designer and Learning Technology Advisor; I work in a higher education institution, where I support teachers in pedagogical projects that involve technology. I also volunteer in my community as a homework tutor for a "stay-in-school" program called Passeport pour ma réussite (Pathways to Success), aimed at high school students. My own life experience showed me the value of staying in school and investing in education, so I try to contribute my personal and professional skills in helping others achieving their own objectives.
Hi Shane, Vestine has sent me the contact information for the project director at JC-HEM and I have forwarded it to Kidogo. They will get back to us in a few weeks; the administrators are all travelling for now, but they have offered a possible call at the beginning of July. Not being in the field, it is difficult for me at this point to say where support will be needed ; I believe it will be clearer after the conversation takes place between Kidogo and JC-HEM. With that said, perhaps Vestine and the JC-HEM team have already defined certain needs?
Dear Vestine, I have contacted both Kidogo and JC_HEM. I have received a positive response from Kidogo : they are open to having a call with the JC-HEM team and myself to discuss their model and potential advice. In order to organize the call, Kidogo will need the contact information of the people responsible for the project at JC-HEM (email adress and Skype pseudonym, I presume). The information can be sent to me at email@example.com , and I will forward it to the Kidogo team. Kidogo still has to designate a manager who could be available to move forward on this.
Thank you Shane for this great reference and your enthusiasm. Making connections is as exciting as trying to implement ideas! I will try to reach out to Kidogo and try to make a connection with JC-HEM and Kakuma; if Vestine can do the same, we can hope for collaboration. Vestine, I will definitely contact JC-HEM and see if my skills might be of use in your projects. If you would like to keep in touch for further collaboration, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
