After nearly 24 hours of travel, the Teachers Without Borders-Canada ICT team has arrived in Cape Town, South Africa. Mind you, my brain is tired (not sure if it’s 7:30 PM or 1:30 PM), but the drive to our accommodations was enough to set the contrast here in sharp relief. Along the highway, the airport stood on one side being renovated for SA hosting of the FIFA World Cup next year and the poverty of Cape Town’s townships sat directly across the street.
Tomorrow, we’ll review our scope and sequence for the first couple of days of next week’s workshops. Then, we’re off to one of the schools that’ll be hosting us to check out their lab and set up.
The last order of business = we’ll be going on a tour of one of the townships. I can’t wait to learn more.
Right now, I’m too tired to process properly.
