Use of Technology in English Language Learning. A Case of G.S Bushenge – Nyamasheke District – Rwanda

This study focused on the use of technology in learning the English language at G.S Bushenge, a school located in Nyamasheke district, western province of Rwanda. The aim was to answer research questions regarding the use of computers and projectors on student performance in English learning, the extent to which mobile learning plays a key role in student performance and identifying the impacts of classroom technology tools on students’ performance in the study area. The study adopted a mixed research method (qualitative and quantitative) in which participants comprising teachers, principals and students, or 78 participants in total, were randomly and purposely selected in GS Bushenge located in Nyamasheke district, Rwanda. Study data was generated through semistructured interviews and questionnaires, and analysis was performed with generated tables and graphs showing the results.The study yielded results, showing that 78 (100%) agree that at G.S Bushenge there are technological tools such as computers and phones. In addition, 78 (100%) proclaimed the absence of a projector stating that classroom technology tools (like computers and telephones) are needed in the delivery of the lesson. No less than 78 (100%) indicated that they were important and had positive effects on students and teachers. In addition, 3 (100%) teachers and head of school show that everything in an exaggerated way has negative effects, which is the reason why this is the reason why we mention the high cost of technological tools, passivity of learners, creation of distraction, provision of erroneous information on the Internet as negative impacts in use of technological tools in the classroom. Finally, the researcher made recommendations for students to be eager to copy with technology and use it for educational purposes. Teachers were also recommended to deal with disruptive student behavior. The government should help teachers acquire their own technological tools and train them in their use in education.

Muslims’ In Business: Case Study Of Burkina Faso Muslim

The first fear during the 19th century period focused on the disintegration of moral values embedded in the development of capitalism and the pressure for accumulation and commoditization, Islamic thought had to describe “societies” functioning in its inner logic. Changing a society needs to view it as a social device and to understand its logic. With modern economy, new questions are posed such as: Are Muslims ready to face globalization and maintain their faith? Muslims in doing business are they swallowed by commercialism? Are Muslim obliged to act in business without thinking their acts, either they are halal or haram? Raison why Islamic finance is key sector in Islamic economy. In order to conduct as well as possible this research different methods and techniques are used such as interviews, meetings, discussions, and seminaries as focus group with some personalities involved in Islamic finance industry. From these investigations we found that some of Islamic finance products are known in Burkina Faso and some are proposed by the only one Islamic finance institution that is Coris Bank Baraka. It’s possible to distinguish two categories of financing techniques: those that are based on a participatory financing (Mudhâraba and Musharaka) and those based on an asset (Murabaha and Ijara). The Islamic financial industries products are suitable, it seems that the concept of free interest and respectful of the religion are important for consumers. Islamic finance windows and Islamic bank can conduct successfully shari’ah compliant products according the regulator (BCEAO), the literature review, and most of the leaders, we met in Burkina Faso.
