Kenneth Inn played host to a four day workshop on digital storytelling, by Computers for Schools Uganda. The workshop aimed at analyzing stories written by primary four and five pupils in the project schools of Kasiisi, Mugusu and Rubona primary schools; attracted over six hundred story contributions from the pupils, with only four hundred fifty of these, being passed by the teachers for consideration.
Teachers from the three primary schools conducted in-class and inter-class story writing competitions, to have pupils come up with stories for the project. The project, funded by AusAid and implemented by CFSU, is aimed at equipping pupils in rural schools with modern learning skills and exposes them to ICT oriented class experience.
ANALYSIS: Teachers of Mugusu, Kasiisi and Rubona, analyzing the stories.
The selected stories underwent further scrutiny by CFSU and the teachers from the respective project schools and had only fifty stories selected for digitalizing. This reduction in stories was due to the limited writing skills of the pupils, inconsistent theme formations and numerous grammatical errors. The remaining stories were handed over to CFSU, for further development, improvement and digitalization. The rest were sent back to the contributing schools, for improvement.
