Basic Education E-Learning Seminar 2020 | Online Class


Emperors Palace Conference Centre – Kempton Park, Johannesburg, RSA

15 & 16 October 2020 

By mid-April 2020 about 1.725 billion students globally had been affected by the closure of school and higher education institutions in response to the coronavirus pandemic and this in turn affected about 99% of the world student population. Education, being a social institution serving the needs of society, is indispensable for society to survive and thrive. It should be not only comprehensive, sustainable, and superb, but must continuously evolve to meet the challenges of the fast-changing and unpredictable globalised world. The rapid pace of growth in the use of ICT in education cannot be separated from the benefits to be gained.

The pandemic has left most pupils so far behind schedule for the 2020 academic calendar making it almost impossible for them to write their end of year-examinations, let alone continue with their studies remotely.E-Learning has lagged behind on the continent over a long period of time, and its high time authorities pursued that avenue as it is seemingly almost impossible to avoid this fast growing trend.

The introduction of Computer Science, Programming/Coding, and Computational Thinking to primary school a curriculum have been achieved in several countries, including South Africa  (recently introduced), and is being considered in many more. As this is a relatively recent trend in curriculum development there is still much to learn about the purpose of this area of learning in a child’s primary education, how best to design and integrate this area into a primary curriculum, and how best to use these curricula in schools.

This 2-day event looks to delve on the use of technology in basic education, e-Teacher Professional Development, Coding and Robotics, Choosing Technologies for Teaching and Learning, amongst other exciting topics.
