lunch break stories: SchoolLink and the land of the workshops

relaxed after dinner atmosphere, Afrika Stadt Haus Hotel OngwedivaFrom time to time also our ICT department has a relaxed time: on the 19th of October we attended the workshop/introduction of the new school management software ‘SchoolLink‘ in Ongwediva. Although the idea of having such an standardized and centralized system is convincing I doubt that the system will come operational in January. As most of the IT projects I run into also this has gone wild: as usual a lot of the technical requirements are not met at school sites. Far worse: prior to our workshop some of the management members and circuit inspectors of the 4-O-Regions had never heard about the whole system before. But some of the schools already received training and are using the system.workshop - still four hours to go, multipurpose center Ongwediva
Fringe benefits: thanks to government policies (travel distance >50km) our Omusati delegation had the luxury to stay overnight in the Afrika Stadt Haus Hotel.
