Matthew Goniwe School of Leadership and Governance (MGSLG) ICT for Teachers professional development course

In partnership with the Gauteng Department of Education, the Matthew Goniwe School of Leadership and Governance (MGSLG) is administering an online information and communications technology (ICT) literacy programme for approximately 10,000 teachers in Gauteng province. Given NBA's extensive experience in working with the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers (CFT) and implementing similar projects throughout Africa and the developing world, the team was invited to assist MGSLG in adapting existing open educational resources (OER) and developing new South Africa-specific content. In total, 56 units comprising 80 notional hours were developed. NBA assisted the MGSLG in training the facilitators to administer the course and developed the pilot programme, which was successfully concluded in the latter half of 2017. This course has now been accredited by the South African Council for Educators (SACE), which means that users will have the opportunity to earn points towards their continuing professional development (CPD) requirements by completing this course.
