Uganda Innovative teacher wins a gold award and qualifies for the Global Competetion to be held in Nov 2009 in Brazil
It was all happiness for the Uganda Innovative Teachers at the African Continental Innovative Teachers competition which was held Wed 2nd Sept in Mauritius-the pearl of the Indian Ocean.
In a very hot competition involving 42 innovative teachers from 15 African countries, Milton Chebet, a Biology teacher from Gayaza High School,won the Gold (1st –best) award in the Community Category with his project “Preservation of African Medicinal Plants”.
He immediately walked away with a brand new Toshiba Laptop.
Chebet Milton is one of the three Innovative teachers who will be representing Africa at the global Innovative Teachers competition to be held in Brazil in November 2009.
As SchoolNet Uganda, we would like to celebrate with Milton Chebet who is member of the SchoolNet family, this success.
We are optimistic and confident that he will win the global competitions.
Most of the awards where taken by the South African teachers.
One of the biggest shortcoming with the Uganda entries in the competetion was lack of collaboration with other teachers in Uganda or else where in the world.
SchoolNet Uganda would like to encourage of all teachers who intent to participate in
future events to take advantage of the collaborative opportunities offered by SchoolNet Uganda.
