IT Educator from Georgia Wants Your Used Computers

 

A Georgia tech teacher is working to make a difference in Africa.Speaking, as we just were, of the personal enrichment that can come from giving service to others, there's an excellent feature from the April edition of Certification Magazine that just appeared at CertMag.com, the magazine's official website. The article is a firsthand account from tech teacher Anthony Edwards of Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga. While recently participating in a Fulbright exchange program, Edwards spent 40 days living and teaching computer skills in Moshi, a city in the Kilimanjaro region of the African nation of Tanzania. After seeing up close the meager tools that IT learners have to work with, Edwards was inspired to launch a computer recycling effort to move used IT hardware from the United States to Moshi, where it could get a new lease on life in the hands of eager learners. There are huge needs in Tanzania and elsewhere, and the world could use an army of Anthony Edwardses. Even just sharing Mr. Edwards' account with others could be an important step to making a difference in broadening the impact of IT education around the world.
