This young African teacher drawing was so detailed about Microsoft word that the students can actually understand the subject without seeing the software on a physical computer. His ingenious strategy is commendable and shows that you can still teach IT without today’s technology if you actually knows what you’re doing, This young man must be extremely knowledgeable on the subject
Since Government in that region can not provide computers to IT students due to mass corruption within the government, this genius of a man define a new strategy not to deny the kids what kids of their age are learning around the world. Simply Genius.
