Future Nation Schools have resolved to invest time and resources in technology to ensure that their children receive the best possible education growth and support during their educational journey.
According to the school, in an increasingly digital world, technology helps to enhance literally every touch point in our daily lives.
Mampho Langa, head of Future Nation Schools, said it is within the education sector to ensure that the impact of technology is the most profound for every child in the world.
Langa said their key focus at their schools, including their school in Lyndhurst, is to ensure that children reach their full potential. “With so many educational tools available that not only enhance but streamline learning processes, we have made every effort to ensure our learners have access to and benefit from various online and social tools.”
Some of the educational tools the schooling group uses connect parents, teachers and learners and Langa said they can be accessed on all mobile devices.
She said others include game-based learning platforms comprising activities such as multiple-choice quizzes.
The school has a bring-your-own-device policy where children bring their own tablets and learn how to better tap into the power of their cell phones using technological tools during school.
“The benefits offered to learners through these mobile tools and platforms are vast,” Langa added.
“Teachers can regularly gauge each individual learner’s progress, streamline and fast-track teacher-learner communication and even nurture a supportive and e-mentoring environment that encourages growth.”
They can learn from and adjust lesson plans where necessary or even promote teaching and learning outside of the classroom and school environment.
Through encouraging consistent engagement with learning tools and platforms that are relatable and user-friendly outside of the classroom, Langa said this will mean support and feedback are accessible at home or as and when learners require it.
Remaining on top of important technology trends and innovation is a key priority to ensure ‘we future-proof ourselves to remain relevant in the world of work’, concluded Langa.
