3.3 Training

Teachers and students require training on how to use LCCDs. Beyond that, teachers will need to understand how to use LCCDs in the classroom environment and incorporate them into their teaching methods.

Training in basic maintenance and repair may also be necessary in order to keep LCCDs operational. Some LCCD projects have an extensive support system of volunteers that can help defray training costs. Techniques such as “training the trainers,” where initial teachers or students are formally trained and they pass on what they learned to others, can also help to lower costs.

Training costs can also be internalized and incorporated into existing training frameworks. ICT learning is also different in that there is a significant amount of free training material provided with LCCDs or available online. Once initial skills have been taught, further advancement often depends on self-initiative and making use of the large amount of free training materials.
