About the session
This talk looks at the under-served communities and under-resourced reality most South African learners faced even before COVID. It identifies the driving force behind reaching success during COVID and when distance learning becomes everyone's main objective and collaboration becomes easy. It will show how using a blend of WhatsApp and an online platform with paper-based teaching ensured learners remain “academically fit”, focusing on the benefits experienced first-hand regarding learner's skill development despite school closure.
