Volunteer for e-learning projects in Nepal: ICT volunteers needed for e-learning, IT and telecentre projects in Nepal. Become a IT volunteer to help those who do not have basic/advance computer skills or access to ICT (information and communications technology) and Internet is widening. IT Computer training volunteers need not be experts to teach computer skills to new beginners. IT volunteers support local teachers, improve computer training and e-Learning in Nepal. Volunteers teach 15 – 20 lessons per week. We recommend that you prepare your lessons with your local teacher colleague. This makes teaching easier. The IT volunteer should however also be prepared to teach alone. Computer training ranges from hardware and software basics, games, Office programs and Internet usage. IT Volunteers demonstrate applications, and then help children to explore and learn by themselves. We encourage our computer training volunteers and local computer teachers to facilitate for children and students to use the school computers in their free time. Remaining in the labs give students vital time to practice.Program Requirement:Must be at least 18 years old.Have no major health problems.Be eligible to obtain a tourist visa to Nepal.General knowledge of English Language.Good knowledge of computers, especially word processing.Some skills of lesson planning and computer teaching.
