Dar es Salaam and Mombasa ports fight for Rwanda business

Dar es Salaam and Mombasa ports fight for Rwanda business | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

The port of Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania may be just 1,380 kms from Kigali by road, but officials there have until now looked on helplessly as almost all Rwandan business slipped passed it to the Kenyan Port of Mombasa, a journey that is about 400kms longer through Uganda.

 

Slightly above 50% of Rwanda's shipments go through the Northern Corridor route; Mombasa-Kampala-Kigali, and the recent removal of police roadblocks, reduction in the number of weighbridges and improvements in cargo handling at Mombasa is making the route even more user friendly to Rwandan traders...

 

...A study done by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) in 2009 on impediments to trade in the region says that in Kenya and Tanzania, the average bribe paid per transaction to a policeman or a customs official is $30 while in Uganda it is between $100-150 per consignment.

Tanzania and Burundi were not part of the Kampala meeting, but Dar too seems to have woken up to the reality that trade barriers are counter-productive.

12 Ways to Upgrade Your Classroom Design - Cult of Pedagogy 

12 Ways to Upgrade Your Classroom Design - Cult of Pedagogy  | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
A couple of years ago, I saw a picture on Facebook that stopped me in my tracks: It was the classroom of Michigan high school English teacher Rebecca Malmquist. It looked like a living room. Like a place you’d go to curl up and read a book, take a nap, or have a really good conversation. And yet it was a classroom.

Human Rights Theory and Philosophy | CurtinX

Human Rights Theory and Philosophy | CurtinX | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
The course commences through exploring the development of the conventional understanding of universal human rights and then moves to critiquing this concept from cultural relativist, postmodern, postcolonial and feminist perspectives. It also examines understandings of human rights from a range of cultural and religious perspectives as well as other contemporary rights issues.

Developing an awareness of contemporary issues in human rights is important in professions such as education, health, law, social work and development work, both in the public and private sector. You can also benefit from human rights knowledge in a voluntary capacity, advocating social justice, peace or building a sustainable future.

This course is part of the CurtinX Human Rights MicroMasters program.

If you take the verified certificate pathway for the three human rights courses you will qualify for the MicroMasters credential.

The MicroMasters credential is an achievement in itself, but if you want to study further, you can use it towards studying a Master of Human Rights at Curtin.

After 100 years of the same teaching model It’s time to throw out the playbook

After 100 years of the same teaching model It’s time to throw out the playbook | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

It’s time to change the direction of the arrow by for once and for all turning it around and allowing it to originate from the student. Imagine a classroom where students are the ones driving the learning and are empowered to pursue things that matter to them. In the infographic above we see multiple modalities being employed by these students as students are accessing human and digital resources to drive their own learning. In a 21st century learning model, learning extends beyond the classroom walls, and students are exchanging, discussing, questioning, reflecting and making connections anywhere, anytime. Most importantly, students are inspired and empowered to act, rather than sit back and have the knowledge brought to them.

Why We Need to Get Rid of Anti-Tech Teachers - The Tech Edvocate

Why We Need to Get Rid of Anti-Tech Teachers - The Tech Edvocate | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
The increasing popularity and endless benefits of edtech are changing the face of education. Teachers need to begin embracing these changes to improve the consistency and quality of the education system. As these technological advances continue, it’s time for us to get rid of anti-tech teachers who are holding tight to the traditional classroom model.

Why should we make a move to get rid of anti-tech teachers? Take a look at few of these convincing arguments that demonstrate just how important technology in education is becoming.

Establishing A Culture Of ‘Can’ In Your Classroom - TeachThought

Establishing A Culture Of ‘Can’ In Your Classroom - TeachThought | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
If a learner is to develop a sense of can, he or she must learn it. While some students have more natural confidence or initiative than others, can is slightly different than confidence. Can is a mix of knowledge and self-efficacy that has been nurtured through experience — by consistently meeting both internally and externally created goals judged by standards that are also both internally and externally drawn.

So how does this happen? Where does it come from?
