Blended Learning for Maths, Science and Maths Literacy

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

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!
