Many of our students have known nothing outside of the camp’s boundaries for their whole life. It is common that ethnic students along the border to have precious little knowledge of news and current affairs. For our SDC students, we aim to change that. This month, students on SDC’s basic course were introduced to a new activity: Information sharing. Beginning on the basic course, this year, every Friday, our students will present information about current news either in Burma or internationally to their fellow students. The students will present their information, individually, and each week different students will be selected to provide information. We believe this activity will both further our students’ knowledge of the world around them as well as provide a valuable opportunity to improve their public speaking and presentation skills. The activity fits in well with our school policy of providing learner centered activities for our students. This activity will also soon be implemented on the SDC Advanced Community Management Training Course.
