Le Funday, « teaching is fun » Formation modernisée
Les contenus d’enseignement ne s’arrêtent pas aux savoirs et savoir-faire. L’école doit prendre en compte le savoir-vivre et des compétences transversales. L’enjeu de la formation est de remplacer les grands discours par des activités qui peuvent se concrétiser de plusieurs manières : travaux en groupe, recherches, enquêtes, projets… Le pouvoir n’est plus à celui qui sait, comme autrefois, mais à celui qui agit. On est dans une logique de l’action.
It is extremely important for educationists in Africa to meet and deliberate on educational issues in Africa. It is our responsibility to share our knowledge with one another and strengthen our intellectual capacity regarding education in Africa.
The DETA 2009 Conference will create a unique platform to achieve the above. The previous DETA 2007 Conference attracted more that 200 educationists from 30 countries in Africa. The DETA 2009 promises to be an even bigger event. Plan now for your attendance at this exiting conference.

Daily updates- Education; Science & Technology
The project will create open content electronic textbooks that will be freely available from a website. Distribution will also be possible via paper, CD, or DVD. Our goal initially is to focus on content development and Web distribution, and we will work with relevant authorities to facilitate dissemination by other means when bandwidth is unavailable or inadequate. The goal is to make textbooks available to the many who cannot afford them.
