My school doesn’t provide the infrastructure to use e-learning regularly. What can I do?

You are not alone in this. From our teacher networks we know that the digital infrastructure in schools can vary tremendously, ranging from schools with wireless web-access and tablet classes to schools with traditional computer labs and inconvenient access to digital technologies.

TeachAboutUS does not require access to computers during each lesson. Inquire about arrangements at your school, e.g., to use your computer lab once a week. If possible, also ask your students to bring their own devices as the platform will be compatible with smartphones, tablets, and laptops.

The materials also allow for a flipped classroom approach (see below), i.e. asking your learners to access the online materials at home and discussing them at school. In addition, selected TeachAboutUS materials will be accessible for download, so that participants can use them in an ‘offline’ environment.
