We got to the Axim Library an hour early today to upgrade all of the XO laptops before my lesson. With the help of my dad and an extremely efficient assembly line setup, we successfully updated almost all 20-something laptops. We were unable to install the updates on three of the computers because the power went out about halfway through, and these three laptops did not have fully-operational batteries. However, the computers were all ready to go by the time the students arrived, and the lesson went very well as a result. I gave the students some simple Wikipedia questions, such as "What is the population of China?" and "What is the capital of Canada?," and then I gave them some time to think of their own questions to ask their peers. The kids loved it, and they came up with very good questions. Some of the kids loved answering the questions so much that they would work together to find a question, and then one of them would ask the question and the other would give the answer almost immediately. It's hard to call out ten- and eleven-year-olds for cheating, so I only gave them some slight teasing once I caught on. At least they were very into the IIAB competition! Or maybe they just liked having everyone clap for them when they answered the question correctly… Oh well. At Axim Girls Senior High School, we faced a slight setback when the generator refused to power my projector, but my dad pulled out his old electrical engineering skills to get it working. For the actual lesson, I split the girls into four different groups of four or five people and then had each group take turns coming up to my computer to answer a question. Every question contained multiple parts and required using at least two of the IIAB programs (Wikipedia, Project Gutenberg, and/or Open Street Maps). The groups all did very well, with some of them finding even faster ways to solve their questions than I had intended! At the end of class, I unplugged the projector and gave each group five minutes to come up with their own multi-step IIAB question. That task took us to the very end of the lesson, but I told the girls to be ready to ask the rest of the class their questions first thing tomorrow! From AGSHS we headed over to Jerry's house, where his wife had prepared one of the local Ghanaian dishes for us for dinner! My dad and I both enjoyed a delicious plate of red red, which consists of black eyed peas and plantains, and, at the end of the night, Jerry presented my father and I with a traditional African shirt and dress as gifts from his family. It was the perfect way to spend our last night in Axim!
