The latest company to join the ranks of ADESSA members is MySociaLife. MySociaLife is a Program which trains Grade 4 to 11 learners to become safer and smarter online, in order to excel in the (4IR) future. They offer 10 modules in schools – critical thinking, digital identity, privacy, security, digital footprint, empathy, resilience, values, cyberbullying, and sexuality. They also train parents, teachers and Mental Health Professionals.
MySociaLife uses the World Economic Forum and DQ Institute pillars of digital citizenship, and also consults a Brains Trust of top doctors and consultants on the 10 topics and then get surveys from students who reveal what works and what doesn’t and what is happening in their lives.
We hope to share some of the insights from MySociaLife on this website in future.
ADESSA welcomes on board yet another new member, Stimulus Maksima. When asked what the company is all about, Lotta Engelbrecht, the executive director, said:
“We assist our clients, ranging from toddlers to adults, in obtaining their desired reading literacy and numeracy levels.
“Our computer-aided learning systems are based on auto-remedial principles and monitor progress on a realtime basis.
“A variety of schools, private centers, parents assisting their children at home, as well as students and adults wanting to improve their reading skills, use our philosophy, services and products with great success.”
One of the latest companies to join ADESSA is Cylo.
“At Cylo, we have brought together decades of knowledge from around the digital world to create our powerful digital platform, Allexis,” says Enzo Vailati, the CEO of the company.
Allexis Education is much more than a Learning Management System (LMS), it is an innovative and holistic platform created to aid schools in becoming completely paperless. Everything a teacher or learner requires for their education is available to them in a smart and mobile tablet, with a plethora of interactive apps to choose from. Allexis Education is fully customisable for each school or University, both aesthetically and in regard to the applications that they wish to use. For example, you may wish to utilise the full ecosystem of applications or you may like to utilise our eReader and Library which is rich in both educational and trade content. The Allexis library has an extensive repertoire of titles from several major publishers including Penguin, NB Publishers, Shuter and Shooter, Oxford University Press and Via Afrika. In addition to this, the Allexis library also contains a large catalogue of music, music videos and audio books.
