COL, in collaboration with the National Institute of Distance Education (INED), launched Phase 2 of COL’s Open/Innovative Schooling model in Mozambique during a workshop organised from 27 – 31 August 2018. During this phase, Technology-Enabled Learning will be implemented in 15 pilot schools.
Speaking on the model, COL’s Senior Adviser: Open Schooling, Dr Johan Hendrikz, said “In preparation for this launch, over 1,600 e-learning resources developed by Mozambique’s Ministry of Education and Human Development were loaded on 15 Aptus devices and handed to staff of the pilot schools who were trained to use the Aptus during the workshop.”
The Honourable Minister of Education and Human Development, Ms Conceita Sortane, handed the Aptus devices and laptops to representatives of the pilot schools. She was accompanied by the Director General of INED, Mr Pedro Baptista, and the Director of the Institute of Distance Education, Mr M. Simbine. The workshop was conducted by Ms RosÃ¡rio Passos.
The workshop was attended by two staff members from each of the selected schools, geographically spread throughout Mozambique. It focused on the pedagogy of teaching in an e-learning mode using the Aptus device.
