First Footprints to give Soul to South Africa's Soil

Learning Academy Worldwide's M-Ubuntu project strongly believes that preparing young readers for the texts or stories that they will read improves their reading skills.

That is why M-Ubuntu’s Mobile Pre-Reading Strategy (MoPreRead) helps teachers to excite their young readers about the paragraph, short story or book that they will be reading.

Re-cycled phones, refurbished MacBooks and wireless routers form the technical infrastructure of this initiative and the M-Ubuntu MobiTechs supports teachers, in-class or prior to class, during deployment.

The school’s existing curriculum content determines the design of the pre-reading strategy which is easily constructed by the Teacher or MobiTechs by using the MoPreRead Template. Images, Video clips, Sounds or Texts (related to the curriculum content) are used from an existing database and a set of questions are designed to give structure to the mini-lesson.

These pre-reading strategies, also called mini-lessons, can be created by teachers on any mobile device that is connected to the local server (refurbished MacBook) and is then seamlessly pushed to the student devices right at the time that the teacher needs it.

Mini-lesson creators even source content from the immediate surroundings, either in class or outside on the school grounds.

Students are also engaged to use their mobile device to capture their observations and share those with the class, either in support of the pre-reading strategy, or as an outcome of the pre-reading strategy.
