Western Cape Classrooms Soon To Go Hi-Tech

As early as next month, schools in Western Cape are set to move away from the norm of using chalks and blackboard to using touch screens. In preparation of this particular move, there has been plenty of things that are being undertaken so as to ensure that the transition is smooth. Among those things include familiarizing students with the new study devices that they will be using starting next month. In addition that, teachers in schools that are in Western Cape are also going to be taught the basics of teaching with the new devices. For instance, they are plenty of teachers in schools at Western Cape that don’t know how to go about it, for instance creating their own e-lessons has proven to be a challenge for many of them. 

The move to see to it that the schools in Western Cape move from the chalkboards to touch screens is part of the Western Cape Education Department plan of ensuring that the teachers in Western Cape schools realize the possibilities that technology have when it comes to learning. “A good understanding of what exactly is e-learning and how the whole process of e-teaching works as well as the important role that technology plays in learning nowadays,” said Debbie Schafer, a spokeswoman for Education MEC. “The technology will be applicable to all subjects taught in schools and will mainly focus on teachers producing lessons easily.”   

She went on to add that, despite the fact that there are some schools that don’t have all the necessary equipments required, there are plenty of efforts being made so as to see to it that technology has been introduced in preparation.
