Good Ideas Turn Challenges into Opportunities

It’s Also About Dispelling Myths … that teachers don’t have time … that teachers don’t share … that teachers are confused by technology

Have There Been Challenges? Sure…

These Challenges are nothing compared to… The 121 million children out of school 25,000 children die every day from preventable diseases The 7 million more teachers needed – immediately Zambia loses over 1,000 teachers to HIV/AIDS each year Literacy in Norway is 100% vs. 21.8% in Burkina Faso

What’s Next?
