Stimulus Maksima will showcase their product to improve reading at the forthcoming Cape Winelands Education District conference/expo (9 March 2019). In the meantime they’ve contributed some food for thought about the success factors that will lead to reading improvement.
Every school can be successful in empowering every learner to obtain the adequate reading skills required to complete every school year, feeling confident, hopeful and inspired to fulfil their dreams and passion in life.
Based on our experience over the past twenty-three years, we identified effective change and project management as essential for the successful implementation of an effective reading strategy and reading improvement system at schools. Effective reading strategies require ownership and overall awareness involving all educators, school management and parents.
Together with overall awareness as well as passionate and motivated role players, sustainable success is guaranteed by the following technical aspects:
- A dedicated computer centre containing state of the art hardware and software.
- Dedicated school principals and educators with a passion for achieving success.
- A structured timetable ensuring that learners will get the necessary exposure required.
- A robust and user-friendly high technology Reading Improvement System that can supply accurate information when and in the format required.
