    • How would you work with students to mobilise stories and cultural heritage on a specific local SD issue or matter of concern (e.g. water pollution, waste, community health, energy, food security, safety of girl children etc.)?
    Since our change project is focusing on the use of ICT resources to improve Teaching and learning materials and preservation of environment, information in a form of stories would be organized and presented using ICT devices explaining how tree planting can preserve the environment, another story will tell how illegal fishing pollute water . Also with the use of ICT devices like projector I would demonstrate to the villages through the recorded stories how economic activities that are not environmental friendly can affect the environment and life of human being.
    • How would you approach the matter of concern with a systems view? And how can this inform a participatory local inquiry into the matter of concern to understand it better? How would you do this with your students?

    I would educate the student teachers in my college then distribute them in various places to facilitate the understanding of the community about the matter of concern this will be possible through visiting indigenous in groups and make a normal discussion with them this discussion will take indigenous from unknown to known.
    • How would you work with your students and the community to work out what can be done together to address the matter of concern?
    My student would work as a part of the community and by doing so they will have the stories of what is the source of the problem facing the community then make a discussion with the indigenous on the way of solving the issue concern.

    • Would it be possible to try out some of the proposed solutions and ways of dealing with the matter of concern? If so how would you and your students approach this?
    Depending on the matter of concern, the solutions to the matters of concern will be implemented depending on the nature of the problem and possible solutions on the specific issue. During the process the student teacher will be given an opportunity to try the possible solution and come up with an appropriate solution on the matter of concern.
    • How would you assess progress in relation to the learning and the co-engaged, inquiry centered approach?
    The progress will be assessed through observing how student teachers and community are participating in the process of funding the solution on the matter of the concern.
    • What would you need to do to implement this teaching activity with your students?
    I will need the support from my student teachers, community and the institution am working with

    • How could you support your students to use this T-learning sequence as they plan for practice teaching?
    I will assist my student teachers with enough knowledge on how engage the community, also I will help them to prepare the plan

    Basically it helped to differentiate SD and ESD that is mostly applicable in life of learning and through this I have a better review of our ET program to the extent that it suit vision and mission of our institution
    What need a great discussion is how the ICT can make the world a suitable place for leaving, a palace with no change of climate
    I would like to emphasize the use of ICT in educating people around Tarime teacher’s college how to use environment sustainably
