future classJOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – MICROSOFT South Africa has unveiled its Classroom of the Future, an exhibition that showcases the latest and greatest educational tools available to teachers.
The facility has been opened in partnership with the Cape Town Science Centre.
Zoaib Hoosen, Managing Director of Microsoft South Africa, says their mission is to empower every person and every organisation in the country to achieve more.
“Technology cannot replace great teaching, but it can make great teachers even greater. We are inspired to work with educators, with students, and with school leaders on their journey to redefine learning in and out of the classroom,” says Hoosen.
Anticipated outcomes of the exhibition are therefore learning how to use technology as an enabler in imparting skills such as critical decision-making and creativity to adapt to the changing world.
Julie Cleverdon, director of the Cape Town Science Centre, says by providing visitors/participants with a progressive view of the classroom the exhibition also serves as a celebration of change and technology’s role as an enabler of that change.
