Wk 2 Act 3 pedagogy in countries with low resources

I have found a blog by a teacher, teaching in Tanzania.
http://educationforafrica.org.uk/intanzania/blog/may2008.html

In this blog he points out that students are not being challenged and not used to intereactive teaching.  He wants to use technology but is limited by the cost of running a desil generator, although he wants to install solar panels.  He wants to encourage student focused learning via a VLE for a number of reasons including…. “there being teachers each term is not guaranteed. Teachers are badly paid and always want to do something else. Most I’ve spoken to want to be lawyers and want to leave Tanzania.”
