Abstract

Often, novice teachers of Luganda language divorce technology and pedagogy from their content delivery. This gap exists in part due to a dearth of discipline-specific guidelines. David’s thesis presents a model of eight interconnected experiential learning guidelines pivoting on three levels of technology integration to enable teacher-educators to bridge this gap. Mr. David tested his model in two semester-long blended Luganda language education courses in one School of Education at a protuberant public university in Uganda. Utilizing his model will enable teacher-trainees acquire necessary Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) to transform the teaching of Luganda language in the contemporary digital age. This study was funded by Swedish International Development Agency (Sida), and was supervised by Prof. Fred Masagazi Masaazi Assoc. Prof. Anthony Mugagga Muwagga.
