Technology: energizing communities in Ghana
In this webcast Mrs. Rosemond Kumah, the coordinator of ISODEC in Tamale, Northern Ghana talks about the way a video attracts people in a community in Ghana and influencing their thinking about girl's migration to the south. I made this webcast because I thought it was an interesting story about the way ICTs can support the work of community workers. Just later I thought it could be nice to blog it as well as an example of the way 'new' technologies can influence communication.
I think technologies in general have the potential to be exiting- and get people enthusiastic. At the same time, it is the art of the facilitator to present it in a way that it is energizing. Access to more ICT facilities can hence widen the range of interventions a facilitator can draw upon.
