Objective of Collaboration
I am a doctoral student in instructional technology and will be traveling to Namibia, Africa to study abroad from 7/10-8/1/07. I seek schools in Namibia (particularly near Windhoek) and other global organizations as collaboration partners. Detailed knowledge about Internet connections (broadband, wireless, or satellite) within Namibia would be greatly appreciated. I will volunteer my services for this project with a Namibian educational agency. As a student visiting Namibia, I hope to learn more about the educational issues that surround emerging democracy in Namibia and the socio-historical context of the country’s educational system.
