Today was my first day of teaching, and it went great! I taught the students at Edinaman from 7:30-9:30 and the teachers from 10-12. The students were all extremely attentive and eager to learn, so they made the teaching easy for me! I gave them a general overview of the databases available on IIAB and briefly explained the technology that we had installed. Then we dove deeper into Wikipedia through some fun little challenges. I gave them various questions, such as "What is the population of Cape Coast?," and the first person to give me the answer for each question round would win. Some of the questions proved to be a bit trickier, such as trying to find the national sports of Canada, but they all did very well. We had a slight delay at the beginning of class because Internet Explorer was not able to run the server properly and not every laptop had Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox installed, but we solved this problem quite quickly. In fact, the students used some of the flash drives that I had given them the day before to install Google Chrome on those laptops! It was great to see all the technology being put to good use so quickly. Several of the students are actually very tech-savvy, and they helped me a lot in trying to get all of the computers working properly. Teaching the teachers was also very fun, and they asked me some good questions that I hadn't thought to teach to them, such as how to save web pages to their computers so that they could access them without connection to the IIAB. I didn't have time to show them this tool today, but I promised that we would go through it on Friday. After teaching, my dad and I decided to take a tour of the Cape Coast Castle. Ghana was largely involved in the Triangular Trade, and Cape Coast Castle was one of the places where slaves were held before being loaded onto ships and taken to the Americas on the Middle Passage. Standing in these dark, hot cells were thousands of slaves were held at a time was surreal, and the stories of the conditions were horrific. The first Anglican church in Ghana was actually started directly above the men's cell, so Heaven existed above ground and Hell below. The door leading from the dungeon to the ocean and ships was referred to as the "Door of No Return," as the slaves were beginning a new life of servitude and suffering. However, the opposite side of the door now reads "Door of Return," as the descendants of these slaves can now return to the homeland of their ancestors as free citizens. Cape Coast Castle was a very difficult place to visit and learn about, but it exists as a very important part of a tragic history.
