  • Description

    In Tanzania, the government's adult education programme has been given a boost with a special seminar for field workers.

    SYNOPSIS: The aim of the seminar, which was held at the Audio-Visual Institute, in the capital Dar es Salaam, was to teach students the effective use of audio-visual aids and other modern techniques of adult education.

    These techniques were, however not entirely new to the participants, who were projectionists working for the Ministry of National Education.

    All the 17 regions of Tanzania were represented at the seminar and experts of the Ministry were on hand to show and explain to the students the latest equipment in the field of audio-visual education.

    As part of the adult education programme, cinema vans fitted with projectors and screens tour rural areas at night throughout the country. Films shown usually cover such subjects as health and agriculture.

    There has been a rapid expansion of education at all levels since the country became independent in 1961. The official government position is that education must serve the aims of overall national planning and policy. All secondary schools are expected to include practical subjects in their basic courses. By 1973-74, about half of children of school-going age were enrolled in school. And nearly three million people were enrolled in adult education classes during 1973.
