GWF Week In Edu-Tweets #67

1. From GWF CEO Kate Groch. One of the most enjoyed prerequisite for Bridging Academy students is that they belong to a mentor group where they meet once every week to share stories of inspiration, career talks and guiding one another in their studies. Kate and the rest of the Good Work Foundation team love that all mentor sessions are held under a mango tree under its cool shade.

2. From Iona student and GWF volunteer teacher German Guzman. German has been working at GWF campuses for a couple of days now. German has been learning and teaching the Open Learning Academy students as part of his volunteering activities and having fun. German came to South Africa from New York to explore how blended learning for rural South African students is being implemented, the impact it has had on the students and how it works.

5. From Justicia Digital Learning Campus. The one thing the GWF CEO Kate Groch always says is that, “if your not here to learn, and if your in the same position and doing the same thing five years from now, then GWF has failed you as your organisation,” that is why often there will be tweets and posts about people coming from all over the world to run workshops, mentor sessions, skills development and life coaching through out the year. We are happy to have Toby come back for language skills training at Justicia Digital Learning Campus.

The Mathemagician has been pumped up as he continues to get rural children awed and lost in the digital world where coding and programming are the only languages understood. Selby and his students have been enjoying video lessons on how programming  and programming language works.
