« Return to Latest News

SchoolNet South Africa has had the privilege to be funded over the next three years by the D G Murray Trust in South Africa to study the benefits of learning through the use of play and innovative technologies for learners in grades R and 1 in ten schools in two provinces in South Africa, the Western Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. The D G Murray Trust has a particular interest in the early primary years where the greatest impact can be made. As the focus of this project is play, we have selected Xbox Kinect games and Android Apps. The first workshops have taken place for the KwaZulu-Natal schools. 

Learning GainsThe first workshop for the project was for the HODs and principals from the 5 KZN schools and was held at Thembelihle Primary School in Howick, as from the 14th  July 2014. Hlengiwe Mfeka and Senzo Ngcobo were the SchoolNet Facilitators and Rodney Nissen from the Western Cape Education Department joined this workshop with the intention of replicating the training in his province. The photo albums  can be found on SchoolNet's Picasa site here.
