Language study made easy and interactive with KasaTech

KasaTech, an initiative to bridge the language literacy gap in rural Ghana has been launched in Cape Coast at the Kakumdo M/A JHS.

The initiative, birthed by the Boa Daakye Foundation, helps students to learn using tablets to connect remotely with the aid of a RACHEL device to access materials on the internet at zero cost.

To make learning easier, virtual reality technology is added to study materials where students find themselves in a virtual world interacting with the language under study together with reading, writing and speaking.

Giving more details about the initiative, Kate Wodenya Amenyikor, the President of the foundation explained that “the initiative comes under our Mobile Learning Lab which is providing an opportunity for learners to leverage technology to learn at zero internet cost

In our quest to effectively improve literacy in Ghana, we have partnered with Omari Kaiser Foundation to launch this new project dubbed Kasatech.”

The name is a combination of Talk (Kasa) and “Tech” from Technology pointing to the initiative’s combination of language and technology to give education to beneficiaries.

This project will provide an opportunity for our learners to leverage technological devices to learn different languages including English, French, Spanish, Russian, and many others with support from CAMFED and Digital Opportunity Trust and Kaiser Omari Foundation, who are implementing partners.
