Creating Children Addicted to Learning!

Londolozi, as a partner of Good Work Foundation (GWF) has outsourced the learning of its younger family members – the preschool children – to GWF. To that end, the Open Learning Academy curriculum is becoming part of What, How and Who has access to learning at the Londolozi Pre-school.

The Open Learning Programme is core to the curriculum at all GWF Learning centres, giving access to digital education to rural Mpumalanga learners.

The two languages of access in the world today are English and Computers. Children need access to these languages as early as possible. GWF is doing just that for Londolozi Pre-schoolers who were recently introduced to learning on computer tablets.

GWF Head of Open Learning Academy Crispen Bvumghe was amazed at just how interactive, effective, and fun the learning process becomes to kids of all ages when the digital aspect is added. “ One of the kids touched the tablet, accidentally pressing play on one of the programmes that was opened, a nursery rhyme started playing and the look on her face was priceless, and even better is that she had the song stuck in her head from that moment on,” said Bvumbghe.

Digital learning is now one of the daily activities at the Londolozi Preschool, creating wonder-filled learning for the youngsters.

“With the internet, television, video games, IPads, IPhones, ITouch and all the apps that go with the technology, monopolising our children’s attention, we must ensure that education and the curriculum is relevant, just as exciting and as ADDICTIVE  as all the other influences. I know that the GWF Digital Learning model is the way to achieve this. I see it in action whenever I am there! I feel privileged to be a part of a model that I believe will play a significant role in solving one of the challenges facing humanity,” said the Londolozi Digital Learning Centre Coordinator Mo Groch, after having experienced the first day of Open Learning with the Londolozi Preschoolers.
