Swedish mobile educator, Ms Louise Österberg and Cape Town-based educator entrepreneur, Mrs Angela Stewart, conducted the introduction to Mobile Learning at Hodisa Technical Secondary School, just outside of Bloemfontein, SOUTH AFRICA.
Teachers saw a full demonstration of the value of mobile devices for learning by engaging in a project themselves to experience first-hand the power of mobiles for learning.Funded by a collaborative between Learning Academy Worldwide and Royal Haskoning DHV, the 1-day event was preceded by onsite visits at the school.
“These teachers show true enthusiasm”, explained Mrs Stewart. “It is encouraging to see how the principal of the school makes teacher professional development a priority”, she added.
The introductory sessions will be followed up by formal in-class sessions where the Learning Academy Worldwide team will show the use of devices in the classroom environment. It is scheduled for May 2014
