Harmattan School 2012 I am in Ghana, participating in the 2012 Harmattan School which is jointly organised by University of Development Studies and GILLBT, both placed in Tamale in the north of Ghana. The theme of the conference is Literacy, Education and Development (see the call for papers here). I have been invited to give a speech on e-literacy, which will take place tomorrow. I will mainly focus on ways of working with e-literacy in teaching and learning, or - in other words - what is it and how can you learn it?
And today I also learned the literal meaning of the word Harmattan, which is the Northeast trade wind which comes in the dry season. And in these parts, dry means dust…!
