The Mpumalanga ICT Club is a community of practice established by teachers to empower other teachers, learners and the community of Mpumalanga to develop their digital skills.
SchoolNet SA has worked closely with the club to present a range of opportunities for teachers to learn basic computer science skills that they can pass on to their learners. We look forward to co-hosing three Train the Trainer Coding Workshops which will be taking place as follows:
- 11 August 2018 at Waterfal Boven TVET Campus
- 18 August 2018 at Witbank TVET Campus and
- 25 August 2018 at CN Mahlangu Campus -Siyabuswa
Ice breaker activities will start at 8am – with the workshops starting promptly at 10am.
At the workshops, teachers will learn how to facilitate an Hour of Code with Megan Rademeyer and they will try out Scratch programming with Nomusa Keninda. We then hope that teachers will go on to run these coding activities as part of #AfricaCodeWeek and the #HourofCode so that learners from under-resourced schools can still have a taste of coding and computer science.
Places are limited to 60 teachers per workshop so sign up here as soon as possible.
Also ensure that you have joined the Microsoft Educator Community prior to the workshops so that you can earn some badges during the workshop.
Up-skill yourself – so that you can give your learners a chance to build their skills!
