Our #followfriday #fridayfeature #meetourstaff staff champion is a man of few words, a man of wise words, a photographer who has an eye for creative and beautiful art, a person who believes that his actions makes him who he is, a man who is insync with his inner being and his thoughts, Thabang Tshabalala. Thabang has been working for SchoolNet for two amazing years, he is a Digital Support Specialist based in Ruabohlale Secondary School in Pretoria. Thabang mainly focuses on Digital Literacy and other ICT support for school management, teachers and learners.
When asked what he likes most about working for SchoolNet he said:
‘’Above everything I like the challenge that comes with having to switch from training someone younger than you to training someone way older than you. It somehow reveals me to myself.’’
When we asked him to point out his favourite SchoolNet project, he said:
‘’ l love all SchoolNet SA projects, they are interesting in their own ways. But I can go with the one I’m involved in now, the Telkom Connect Project, The High School program. Maybe because I got the opportunity to train people to easily adapt to the world of ICT and be part of the 4IR’’
So, what does he want to achieve this year?
‘’I have a lot of things I want to achieve. If I had to base my answer on what I do in this project I would say I want to be recognized for the effort I put in in terms of Learner and Teacher development. I’m almost there. Other than that, I’ve always wanted to donate plates for the school. That is something I’m looking into. And It can be done.’’
