Ronald Ddungu

Ronald Ddungu is a teacher of Mathematics and Physics at Gayaza High School. He has been teaching for the last 17 years and is currently the Deputy Principal in charge of academics and ICT developments at his school. He is also a master teacher with the iEARN-USA teachers’ network.

He also holds a Master of Science in Education for Sustainability from London South Bank University.

 

Ronald has been involved in a number of Microsoft events and was a runner up at the Worldwide Microsoft Innovative teachers’ forum in Hong Kong, 2008 where he presented a project entitled “Education for Sustainability”. He was later on selected to be a Judge at the African and Worldwide Microsoft innovative teachers’ education forums in 2010.

Ronald spends most of his time mentoring teachers in using technologies and project based learning within their classrooms. He is also pioneering the introduction of Community service within the Ugandan schools through his project “ feedthechild

Ronald is pioneering Gayaza High School’s ‘E-Market library’ project, with an aim of creating an online library page with links to videos showing the processes of production within the small scale local enterprises in Uganda and where they are located. The project would be able to document the detailed processes of production within small scale enterprises by using Photo Gallery and Movie Maker in creating instructional videos. As well, the project will create simple websites and flyers using Microsoft publisher, receipt books and invoices using Microsoft Excel that will be used by community members to market their businesses.

Ronald believes that such a library will be able to support quality education that the public is yearning for within the Ugandan schools. This is important because the youth are being encouraged to be job creators rather than job seekers but have no library from where they can learn about the possible businesses that have succeeded in Uganda. The Uganda National Curriculum development centre.(http://www.ncdc.go.ug ) is reviewing the curriculum of lower secondary school in which teachers are expected to use concrete examples within their classes. Such a library would be used as a reference teaching tool.
