Ngwana Enterprises believes that proper, carefully planned approach to education using technology can result in active and results responsible student and school results. Our education needs to be a source of tools, values and principles that promote the interconnected conditions world of today as opposed to the old systems that do not fit for the learners of today anymore.
“EDUCATE DIFFERENTLY” is a project aimed at delivering a comprehensive discussion approach in education which aims at providing measurable framework- in this instance Maths and Science Subjects will be the focus, involving all stakeholders in education, and directing their mutual efforts toward tangible results, matching priorities of a relevant education system that incorporates technology and innovation as central model components.
One of the most important aspects of the project and event initiative is the Ngwana Enterprises open source education platform based on innovation and technology- a unique comprehensive set of tools and software solutions that have been used and benefited more than 400 students, Teachers and Expertise in Francistown and extending as far to the North East part of Botswana and involving the University of Botswana Faculty of Education.
The results and feedback amazingly positive from students/parents and leadership of which includes the Dikgosi and some Development Partners plus public officials in Botswana and abroad. The idea therefore being to partner and initiate partnership to scale out the project for educators, developed to suit all classroom setup (rural and urban) and applicable in various learning environments, and to reach concrete objective of educating differently using available resources in and outside the boundaries of schools and classrooms.
