SMT eTeaching Information Session

The Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) is technology that can truly transform the classroom, and yet it is underutilised or simply not used in many South African schools.

During school visits, SATeacher found that at many schools all over the country inappropriate (and often very expensive) infrastructure had been installed due to the lack of understanding of what is available on the market.

Many SMTs are so busy with the important task of keeping their schools running effectively that there simply is no time for proper research and they then have to rely solely on information from suppliers.

Suppliers are naturally biased towards their own brand and tend to "oversell" infrastructure to schools. 
On top of this, most suppliers can only provide technical training on their own products. The lack of proper training on teaching methodology is a key reason for not fully unlocking the power of eTeaching.

As an independent education specialist, SATeacher is therefore hosting a series of SMT eTeaching Information Sessions.

During this 90-minute session we will cover the following:
  • Introduction
