Slides from the eighth workshop with the children and staff at Lubuto Library at Ngwerere in Lusaka, Zambia. In this last general session, the participants constructed a full letter board in Etoys with spoken letter sounds recorded in Audacity.

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:
