Fifth Workshop for LubutoLiteracy Program in Lusaka, Zambia


Published on

Slides from the fifth workshop with the children and staff at Lubuto Library at Ngwerere in Lusaka, Zambia. We ventured into making flaps in Etoys to contain pop-out information and to temporarily hold working tools during production. Then we deconstructed the Lubuto Bemba Letterboard and saw how to make a transparent sound button. Lastly, transparent sound buttons were built over individual words in a sentence and triggered with mouseEnter.

The eight days of workshops I am delivering are funded by a USAID/WorldVision grant from the All Children Reading Challenge. Representatives from the Zambian Ministry of Education participated in all the sessions. Photos here:
