CTA launch first digital literacy training for farmers

CTA and the Eastern Africa Grain Institute (EAGI) held a weeklong digital literacy training for farmers and stakeholders in the rural community in Dar el Salaam.  Prof Faustin Kamuzora, a member of the CTA Executive Board representing the Eastern African region and Deputy Vice Chancellor, Finance and Administration, Mzumbe University told journalists in Dar es Salaam that as technological innovation is taking place at a breath-taking pace, equipping skills to as many people in Tanzania is very essential to upgrade their digital literacy:  “Open source internet-based applications and services designed to enhance online collaboration are now available to the wider public at little or no cost at all.”  Participants were introduced to selected web 2.0 applications including social media. Training also covered advanced online searching, getting information served via alerts and RSS, collaborating remotely using Google Drive, Dropbox, VoIP, online mapping and social networking. This learning opportunity forms part of CTA initiatives that support development partners in networking, accessing and disseminating information more effectively.
