New Literacy and Technology Education Programs Take Shape
Ann, Hina and Hassan all believe in the power of education to improve the lives of children. English literacy is a critical skill to help improve the lives of these children and open their worlds to new possibilities within their communities.
The Ann Foundation’s Online Classes are an interactive way to motivate students to learn English. Ann’s volunteers conduct reading and speaking sessions with videos, flash cards, animations and other tools that encourage children to learn. After their very first AF class, children almost finished correct pronunciation of the entire English alphabet!
In addition to learning English language skills, AF provides education in the use of modern technological tools. Students of GCT were very new to Skype classes and were fascinated to interact with AF tutors around the globe. Encouraging this interest in emerging technologies is critical in helping children keep pace with the modern world, while also exploring the rich cultures around them.
