Remote support is everything!

The Starting Chance fieldworkers, two of whom come from the broader Mfuleni community, play a key role in nurturing the development of the community with oversight provided by our Education Coordinator. Here is Noms, one of our fieldworkers, who has turned her home into an office. She enjoys working on her computer.

Virtual training during lockdown

Our virtual training aims at coaching and mentoring our Principals to get ready to open and to prepare their parents and children too.

Tech Savvy - Teachers and Children

Access to tablets for the child of the future and computer training for the teacher of tomorrow.

Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting kids working together and motivating them, then the teacher is the most important. –– Bill Gates

Our Approach

We introduce children to the future and empower teachers with new skills.

 

Kids

 

Tablet smart and confident

Game smart and having fun

Excellent perceptual skills

Tablets are used to compliment concrete learning (not to take its place)

 

Teachers

 

Computer literate, effective users

Connected and creative – making resources

Professional communicators and report writers

Computer training enables teachers to become more professional when it comes to their admin and also to google for educational aid thanks to free wifi.
