Interview with Ebenezer Malcolm, the Project Manager of GTP

Malcolm shared his expectations and some skills acquired so far from the ten days wireless training taking place in Winneba from the 1st to the 10th of August 2007
What is your name and what organisation are you coming from?
My name is Ebenezer Malcolm, the project manager of the Global Teenager Project, Ghana.
What do you have to share as some of the skills acquired so far from the wireless training workshop?
We have been taken through a lot of issues such as introduction to wireless networking, how to configure computers in terms of forming an enclave of hot spots. We also learnt alot about creating or building local Antennas where you can develop your own Antenna in case you don't have the proprietory type and I feel that these things have really helped us to uderstand the nitty-gritty of wireless networking.
What are some of your expectations at the end of the ten days training and how will you impact some of the knowledge gained to others?
My expectation at this workshop is that, I will go back to the office at the end of the ten days training to impact the knowledge I have acquired over here to my colleagues and it will become like training of trainers type of workshop. In addition to that, we will also go back to the various Schools where we have School Computers and also try to build the capacity of the teachers that are working in these Computer Laboratories so that they can also know how to set-up simple wireless network. In addition to that also take them through how to solve some of the troubles when they ensue especially when the Computers are not working very well in terms of having Internet access.
I feel these are some of the expectations I will take back.
