Matenwa Workshop

     ACP partnered with Friends of Matènwa (FoM) to conduct a 2-week literacy camp at the Matènwa Community Learning Center (MCLC) school on the island of La Gonâve in Haiti. The camp was conducted between July 21 and August 1, 2014. The Matènwa Literacy Camp used a combination of educational theory-based practices and ACP’s Tablet Implementation Program to achieve ACP’s goal of introducing technology as a supplemental tool to improving literacy. The combined processes and techniques used in the camp are core components of the ACP Literacy Program. 

     Additional goals of the camp included the piloting of ACP’s custom-developed primary-level reading applications in Haitian Creole, exploring the possibility of converting Matènwa’s Mother Tongue Books into applications with accompanying read aloud sound, and providing Matènwa’s teachers with a brief overview of ACP’s Tablet Implementation Program.

     ACP used an empirical evidenced-based approach in implementing the Literacy Camp, utilizing knowledge acquired from previous research and experience, to implement best practices and make improvements that enhance the effectiveness of the program. The Matènwa Literacy Camp was a success and all goals were achieved. The final report is located in our Library.
