MyCOE Teacher Workshop in Tunis, Tunisia
MyCOE is promoting the use of geography and GIS to support basic math and science education in the Muslim World. Working with collaborators in the Middle East, North Africa, and in the US, MyCOE is improving the availability of innovative educational resources and GIS software in Arabic for K-12 teachers in the region. In August 2008, MyCOE is providing capacity training in the use of geographic technologies and hands-on active pedagogy that engages youth in math and science for 25 educators from Tunisia, Bahrain, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Yemen, selected competitively from across the region. Teachers will receive travel support as well as newly translated materials, including adapted award-winning geography learning resources and technology tools such as the freely available ESRI AEJEE software for educators in Arabic.
