Thanks Bikino for sharing

Thanks Bikino for sharing this topic with us. This is one of the interesting topics so far where we have to show how tcop has assisted us to do our mentoring work. To me through tcop have borrowed one of the good practices shared by one of us and used it to help my teachers, this was about on how we can form reading clubs,usage of the library in away of promoting the reading culture in our education system/schools.

Good morning everybody, TCOP

Good morning everybody, TCOP helped me to fulfill my duties as mentor in matter of being my resource and learning from others here!

Typically example is where it has been a big challenge to find time to put together all teachers but one day I find idea where I can approach a teacher in his free time then i assist him or her! Another thing is how TCOP has been my resources to some lessons, lesson plan formats, new curriculum, texts, ... where there was shortage of books!

Igorora, thats one of the points i also picked from tcop how to create mentoring time without waiting for reb to give us the time table. after reading that topic went and discussed with my school leaders and teachers and we started sparing time before and after classes without disturbing the school library. so through tcop me and you we managed to learn how to carry out mentoring. Big up tcop...longlive

Elisabeth, according to this

Elisabeth, according to this point you really use tcop more than most of us because you even use the education tips shared and the library. tht is really very good and all the rich resources on tcop help us a lot. Still on the same point like yours picked stories from the story bank that have used while mentoring. printed stories and shared with teachers and advised them they can use the same resources in their classes.

Yes, the TCOP has been very

Yes, the TCOP has been very useful to me as I got  ideas which are very important from my colleagues. I knew the qualities of a good mentor, and even those of a good teacher.This is very helpful in my daily work. I tried to help my fellow teachers in using some verbs and words correctly and how to manage a class especially in solving problems.

In addition, I got how to use ICT effectively. As I live in rural area where it is not easy to access the internet, with the TCOP, it is very easy. The problem I still have is the limited time.

Now, let's help each other to prepare our future and build the quality of education for our Country.

Through tcop have learnt

Through tcop have learnt effective means of communication which have transferred to teachers, before i used to fear communicating with my teachers and the leaders of the school but through tcop exchanges with my fellow mentors have developed this important skill that increased my confidence to carry out my mentoring work. I remember during the trainings with reb and tcop team most of us asked how we were going to communicate with our leaders and teachers to convince them and the answer they told us was to use tcop and discuss with your fellow mentors to over come that problem. I would say within three months after training my communication skills ad increased that i used in assisting the teachers.

​Dear TCOP Team, Mentors and teachers who are going to participate in this Today's Meet the Expert, On my idea as a teacher of EP Gasabo, Rutunga sector, Gasabo district.

3.TCOP helped us to share ideas with others on easy way without taking a lot of time and helps to share and inform my fellow teachers easily.

4.TCOP is very important for a person who uses it because when you meet with a problem you can ask it your fellow mentors in short time and help you to be always update.

5.TCOP helped us also to be familiar on internet and helped us to train other teachers how to use internet explore and using computer in different ways.

TCOP also is very important

TCOP also is very important because mentors have different technics they use to mentor their mentors  according to their community of teachers on their schools especially on they live in case of friendship. From that, we can learn how we can behave if teachers  do not want to follow our different sessions

Hi friends,

Hi friends,

It is quite difficult to begin sharing the benefits of this portal to mentors. As one of the mentors who have been using tcop I have enough to share with you. In the course of training and helping my fellow teachers, I use tcop as a reliable resource from where I can get CBC syllabi and other resourceful books. For example the book talking on how to taech Kinyarwanda in lower grade pupils. I have learnt from tcop a number of things like different techniques of training and how to report on the best practices in our schools. Tcop provides me with firsthand information around the country especially in education sector. Through Tcop, I have made new friends like Igorora, Twahirwa, Bikino, Jean Paul and so many others. Hence, I take TCOP as a store of wisdom and intelligence. It is also a point of meeting .

Tcop assisted me in several things by reading and searching other mentors' views, experiences every time I want to train my colleagues at school. For example our DOS asked me to train teachers on scheme of work and lesson plan of kiny, frenc and swahili. I feared because I had no formats. But I became very happy after drawing it from TCOP then I trained without any doubtt. So let us praise TCOP.          

Keep giving and sharing experiences.
