Many teachers in South Africa have been faced with an unexpected and abrupt transition to virtual teaching during COVID-19. To support you, Oxford University Press and their partners at Epigeum have made two of their online training programmes, Teaching Online and Blended Learning, freely available until 31 May 2020.

The Blended Learning concept is new to many teachers in South Africa!
One of ADESSA’s members, Maths & Science Marketing, has taken blended learning to the next level, making full use of ICT to enhance the teaching and learning of these critical subjects in South Africa. The subjects being catered for are: Grades 1 – 12 Maths, Grades 10 – 12 Science and Grades 10 – 12 Maths Literacy
With Blended Learning, teachers and learners can make full use of the various forms of hardware equipment – computers, tablets, smart phones, data projector, TVs and the internet. These pieces of equipment may then be used by teachers and learners to access any materials and methodology that is available from the Maths & Science Marketing website – all for FREE!
A single page in the Blended Learning programme (and there are at least 300 pages) identifies and isolates a particular topic/chapter and all relevant CAPS aligned material published by MSM on the website, together with what is also available on the same topic from other top-class websites, is all avaiable from one page on the site by means of links to the respective topic on each of at least 6 – 8 other websites!
