iSchoolAfrica is an education initiative developed by Core Group that reaches schools across South Africa in rural and urban settings. The overall objective of the initiative is to empower teachers and students by giving them access to the world’s most advanced educational technology and classroom practices.
The iSchoolAfrica programme brings to schools the iPad Learning programme, Youth Press Team Programme and the iSchoolAfrica Inclusion Programme.
Over 60 000 learners and 3000 teachers have had an opportunity to interact with the programme .
The iPad has become a game changer for meeting educational objectives and has features that can address the specific contextual challenges facing our educational communities. Through exposure to interactive apps, it has been proven that learners become more motivated, leading to enhanced performance in the classroom.
The iSchool Press Team programme sets up press clubs in schools, giving young South Africans a voice on issues that affect them.
Using iPad technology, the programme focuses on empowering young people with the tools to express themselves in a digital medium.
The aim of the iSchoolAfrica inclusion programme is to offer a relevant and customised educational solution for learners with remedial and special needs.
The programme includes solutions for children with disabilities such as autism, visual impairment, deafness, cerebral palsy, motor functionality and dyslexia.
