GWF Week in Edu-Tweets #3

The Silicon Bushveld has been in full swing this week. Our CEO and Head of Open Learning at the Digital Education Show in Johannesburg, the continued roll-out of Open Learning Phase 2 (see last week’s picture here) and the “women in tech”, well, taking “women in tech” to a whole new level. But there are also the stories that keep us grounded – keep us true to the culture of our organisation. Like the first tweet below. It’s amazing what can be achieved when individuals believe in each other and are abundant with their abundance! Enjoy this week’s roundup.

1. From our head of the International Computer Driving Licence (ICDL) programme, Gay Sibuyi, who helped one young mother find a local solution for “daycare” so that she was able to spend the year becoming digital knowing that her child was in good hands! #WomenInTech

2. From Wiriko.org, a cultural association for the dissemination and promotion of the arts and African cultures, who found our tree and love it as much as we do. Translation of the tweet: “The Tree of Knowledge of @GwfOnline – example of innovation and creativity to transform #Africa.”

4. From English Facilitator, Njabulo Thabiso, who has many talents, including being handy with a camera! Here he captures some of his colleagues getting digital in Hazyview. You don’t have to be urban to be part of the online world!

5. From the tech man himself, Abna Machavana, who can’t wait to get a pair of these shades. Rumour has that his IT department at Hazyview Digital Learning Campus is up for a major South African award – watch this space!
