Bloemfontein Conference

Curiosity and capacity collided at the Innovation in Education conference in Bloemfontein over the weekend of 7-9 November.

After three days in the City of Roses, participants at the conference expressed a real desire to propell the inspiring challenges, from a gauntlet to a voice. Ten national projects and 2 projects from the USA and CHINA respectively, presented at the conference.

Mr James Williams demonstrated the Learning Academy Worldwide tech-solution for pre-reading strategies at the Unesco Mobile Learning Week in Paris last month.

Part of the M-Ubuntu project in South Africa, the teacher-lead, off-the-grid solution will stream curriculum-related media-rich content to mobile devices.

Using recycled phones donated by Sprint, USA, refurbished routers and MacBooks, Mr Williams created a local internet that works within the parameters of the school where, especially rural schools with unreliable internet connection, can access curriculum-related content in a browser-based interface.

Several schools in South Africa will switched on their own internet at the beginning of the 2nd quarter of the country’s academic year.

A professional development program for young Mobitechs and Teachers will also be launched as part of the roll out starting in April, 2014

Teachers from both Ilanga Secondary School and Isizinda Secondary School in the KwaZulu Natal Province spent precious days of their Spring holiday in sharpening their skills for mobile learning initiatives at their respective schools
