MEET THE EXPERT : HOW TO ASSIST OUR PEER MENTORS TO STAY AND USE TCOP FREQUENTLY - STARTING NOW

Since you became a member of TCOP platform there has been a lot of peer learning, sharing best practices and challenges, provision of great resources just to mention but a few. This platform has reformed and transformed many of us in areas of teaching techniques, ICT mentorship and soon we are becoming experts in those areas.

Despite all those opportunities and great experiences, we are gaining from this community, there are some of your colleagues who we have observed are not gaining much because they are not accessing the platform.

It is in this regard therefore, that MCOP Team has organized a session on strategies to bring back reluctant users to TCOP platform.

STARTING NOW: HOW TO ASSIST OUR PEER MENTORS TO STAY AND USE TCOP FREQUENTLY.

 MCOP team is going to share with you ways we think can be catalysis to attract them and don’t miss this interesting topic to share with us strategies you think we all can use to bring back those who are not as active as expected.

Dear, thank you so much for

Dear, thank you so much for your idea. However, we can not ignore that we have a big problem of connection. Remember that we have some remote areas where connection is a big problem, not only that but also, some of mentors have the problem of Lap top some of those  lap top have been corrupted, that is why i would like to suggest that TCOP has to continue controlling If what they have given us are still working. 

Moreover, the meeting time is not suitable for all of us .

regards,

Pacifique

Many thanks to you Pacific.

Many thanks to you Pacific. what you've said is definitely true. The computer I was given worked properly only two weeks. From that time I took it to Positivo and up to now it's still , I frequently ask them, but the answer is one( your computer wasn't repaired)

This is interesting topic. My

This is interesting topic. My views about the topic how to  assist our peers to stay and use TCOP frequently is that we have to make sure that all are able to access the portal, login and posting. Are all mentors able to login? If they are not how do we assist them? Do we know one another? If not how we will we do that. It is better for MCOP to prepare for us the meet in district or sectors to know everyone’s issues and relationship among us. Thanks

You raised great point
  • You raised great point Cyprien.
  • They have to be able to access the portal, login and posting. Who do you think is a right person to assist them? TCOP team(Only 4)? Or any of us as Peer Mentors can assist colleague and make them comfortable with those mentioned skills? I need answers from everyone on your views.
  • Do you know one another? This is important too! we have to know each others and assist each others. How can initiate this? TCOP Team ? Or Mentors? Can we as mentors do this?
  • It is better for MCOP to prepare for us the meet in district or sector. I am not sure if we necessary need MCOP to organize this? I think you have everything to arrange it. Does anyone on my side? 

Thank you again Cyprien for this comment. Waiting from others.

Thanks again Bikino. Mentors

Thanks again Bikino. Mentors who approaches their peer mentors have to assist them rather than waiting for MCOP team to come and assist mentors. Hope most of us are able to or have skills about how to login on TCOP. If we assist one another TCOP will be more productive I hope. Thanks again for your agreement sir

Really,we need to help each

Really,we need to help each other as possible it may be.We need to improve in our work.But some challenges like the finance are not to be left out.The salary of the teacher/mentor limits us from traveling too much.Otherwise,we are there and we can.

Thanks for this topic,, for

Thanks for this topic,, for me as the problem I see; there is a need of collaboration of mentors in districts or sectors, that is why some of us miss due to different areas but if we have a coordination where to meet we can share, and as you know we can not go without a permission.. as a recommendation this tcop leaders should tell the SEOs  or DEOs that they should give mentors where to meet and this should help those ones who miss this opportunities by sharing with others,, and if they have problems about the ICT someone else can explain to them clearly... this can help because these experts can not reach every where. thanks

Our fellow mentors, are

Our fellow mentors, are often encouraged to use tcop time to benefit from our mates, but some of our fellow mentors do not use nor visit frequently the portal, as a mentor I created a group whatsapp of all mukingo sector mentors and teachers as well, therefore whoever doesn't attention the talks, get information through whatsapp media and call advice
Motivation, encouragement,advice, positive attitude, changes in behaviour and face to face talks are the tools to be used when encouraging mentors to use tcop portal

That is what I did

This is great Dushime. You re doing great. But the problem with small groups working via what's up or calls, we who are not in Mukongo Sector will not be able to know the great things you are doing overthere and learn from you. Thats why we need a Online Community of Practice to learn from neighbor peers and remote ones. 

Do you think we have power as mentors to make a campain for that?

Good morning all.This portal helps us to get solutions of the problems we meet in teaching learning process.We remember that TCOP has offered some thing to the mentors who have participated more than the others. This is the positive motivation.

Thank you Mr BIKINO For this today's meet expert,In my District where I am working,the mentors are active nowaday except 4 who have problem of connection,and 1 who has lost his modem,I try to call one by one in order to create friend ship and it is the way of encouraging them to work because when you talk with them you can know their challenge and you can report to the one conserned.In Ruhango District,we are 29 Mentors who have given machines and Moderm.

This is a great example Mr

This is a great example Mr Job. You are smart! This means if it works from you thought your own initiate, It can also work from others. Can we others use the same technics and see if we increase participation? 

For those who lost modems, you know we assist in getting new sim card. Please let our team know. We can assist.

For those with poor internet, try to relocate sometimes where you trust strong internet signal.
