Re: [school-discuss] FOSS Digital Literracy Camapaign in Cameroon,Africa

Bonjour Dirk
Please can you provide me some readings about : Paolo Freire's teaching methods.. is true you are not the first person talking to me about him, but i still wonder how i can put his methods in practice am not an academician and in fact the reason why i target School Dropout and young adult is simply because i am part of that same group but i feel like the one who should take the lead because am standing in a position to do something that i would have loved someone else did for me some few years ago when i where idle and had no jobs is true am still in a delicate situation with my boss going to close the cyber but am not affraid.
Merci d'avance
