This course is based on the work of the MIT-African Internet Technology Initiative (MIT-AITI). MIT-AITI is an innovative approach by MIT students to integrate computers and internet technology into the education of students in African schools. MIT-AITI achieves this goal by sending MIT students to three African nations in order to teach both students and teachers through intensive classroom and lab sessions for six weeks.
This course Web site has two major components:
- Content from the spring 2005 preparatory seminar offered by the MIT-AITI leadership.
- A snapshot of the MIT-AITI summer 2005 program in Kenya.
