The Tablet 4 Kids course reached Senegal on March 26, 2018, when 16 students started discovering how to use this unique tool for the first time.
The course was organized in Thies, a city near Dakar, where Giovanna Bottani trained the first group of local teachers for a whole week while teaching to the kids (a group of children between 9 and 13 years old coming from nearby schools).
During the week, the participants had the chance to discover something new about this tool, learning and having fun every day. They became journalists, artists, party organizers, and detectives. Through these exciting missions, the children could understand how to use tablets in a constructive way.
The feedback received was extremely positive. Children, trainers, and partners were enthusiastic about its content. After the pilot run, the course content was refined to be officially launched in the country.
