This is Lisa Donohoe Luscombe, one of the blog contributors traveling to Hinche, Haiti.
Today I am packing for our trip to St Andre’s. My role will be to do an extensive English language teaching and learning assessment. I’m packing OLPC laptops, soccer balls and laptop chalkboards. I’m still waiting for jump ropes to arrive. We’ll see how we can use these for kinesthetic learning activities!
Also, allow me to introduce our awesome English as a Foreign Language (EFL) Haiti curriculum design team from the Monterey Institute of International Studies! These students are very excited and bursting with ideas about their project. They are working on a curriculum that integrates One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) with English language learning.
Meet, from the left: Maggie, Syd, Haley, and Dane!
