Computer class

Paul and another man have been teaching a computer class to a group of about 30 PNG adults.  These men and women come from all over the country to receive training in leadership and literacy work.  For almost all of them it is the first time they have ever seen let alone used a computer. 

 

They start at the very basics like how to operate a mouse.  They demonstrated how to move it forward, back, right and left in the air but assumed the students knew to keep it on the mouse pad.  They chuckled as most of them were waving the mouse around in the air.  These students have plenty “save” (knowledge) about lots of things that we don’t have a clue about but computers isn’t one of them.
