The Nice View Gratitude School in Msambweni does have an IT room where students are taught computer skills. But until recently, the school had no Internet connection. In January 2019, this changed with support from FLMH, a communications agency from Berlin, Germany. Now, several computers are connected to the Internet.
But “the Internet” is a lot more than just cables and routers; using it requires digital literacy. FLMH and the teachers at Nice View organized a week-long project to show students how to become active Internet users. As “Nice View Reporters”, they explored their surroundings from a journalist’s perspective, took pictures, conducted interviews, and published their work online.
