Afternoon of tuesday 3rd oct '06, found us at the karagwe secondary school. We set about getting computers & everything else ready for an audio/video conference with friends in europe and the US. We planned to have a conference with Martin junginger & Peter Kremer (netherlands), Joseph croskey (US), lilian njogu (kenya) ...
Martin at utretch university, was the first to address the students. He talked about his place of work, utretch university employing about 2,000 people with over 20,000 students. He also talked to the students about the usefulness of using computers and the Internet among which was: email, research, report writing, chatting & free voip calls just like the one we were conducting :) Martin was able to also view the pictures of the students & everybody present using the webcam we had set up.
Peter later signed in and he too gave an inspiration to the students on the use of computers & the internet. He was also able to view the live webcam transmission from the school.
The headteacher promised to have every student get an email address before they completed their stay at the school. He also gave a short demonstration of the popular google search engine, how to get answers to student questions, etc.
In all the students expressed happiness at being able to finally have internet at their school and currently they are to have access to it in the school library and the computer laboratory under supervision of the librarian & computer teacher respectively.
