African Education Week looks at critical issues affecting schools, FET colleges and universities, and provides a forum for representatives of all these sectors, as well as government, publishers, e-learning providers and corporates, to identify what needs to change and how, what new technologies and ways of thinking can enhance teaching and learning, and how to equip students for the demands of the workplace.
Solutions at African Education Week, Booth 313, to see just how the company’s various communication applications have already been used by government, educational institutions and corporates involved in education to get their message across.
Over five million Z-CARD®
's have been produced for various South African educational institutions and government departments to date. With applications ranging from university campus maps and information, to student discipline procedures, exam survival guides and school values, the Z-CARD®
provides a compact, retainable method of communicating important information to learners.
Pritt, for example, recently selected PocketMedia®
Solution’s Unidentified Folding Object (UFO) as a gimmicky and fun way to encourage school children to recycle and look after the environment.
Solutions has also demonstrated how the entire Periodic Table of Elements could fit onto a custom-made Z-CARD®
for the Department of Science and Technology's Public Understanding of Biotechnology Programme. “The credit card-sized Z-CARD®
was small enough to fit inside a learner’s pencil case or pocket for ease of reference when studying or at school,” says John Davis, the Managing Director of PocketMedia®
“Both the public and private sectors have seen a significant return on investment when using the Z-CARD®
as quick reference guides, or to get information across to learners,” he adds.
This year African Education Week has introduced the Career Indaba
to bridge the gap for students between studying and entering the world of work, by bringing together grades 9 to12, college and university students, with educational institutions and the business world to provide information on how subject choice effects career paths, career guidance, skill development, available study options, bursaries and employment opportunities for graduates.
Solutions has sponsored this year’s Z-CARD®
floor plan and exhibition guide for the Career Indaba
