DURBAN – THE South African Internet Service Providers
Association (ISPA) has recognised three South African teachers that have
best made the most of technology to empower students.
At the annual iWeek conference and exhibition held in Durban, Amandla Vinjwa was named as ISPA SuperTeacher of the Year.
Marina Myburgh was named ISPA TechTeacher of the Year and Mokhudu Machaba as ISPA MobileTech Teacher of the Year.
“The ISPA SuperTeacher of the Year competition is said to be a
life-changing experience. I really believe that and I am going to continue
to work hard this year to ensure that the competition not only changes my life for the better, but also the lives of my learners in particular,”
Vinjwa said.
The eventual three competition winners received several prizes from sponsors.
Hearshaw and Kinnes Analytic Laboratory sponsored wireless two terabyte hard-drives for the winners and Edit Microsystems contributed big Shox wireless speakers.
The Mighty Pen Education magazine offered the winners a free lifetime
subscription to the digital magazine.
Meanwhile, WASPA sponsored Samsung tablets and a voucher for one year’s airtime for each of the three winners – as well as accommodation and a one day workshop on “Creating an effective and safe digital persona” for all the finalists in the 2017 SuperTeachers Competition.
“We fully expect the ISPA SuperTeacher of the Year, ISPA TechTeacher of the Year and ISPA MobileTech Teacher of the Year to proudly follow the excellent example of their peers who went before them and proved to be such outstanding ambassadors for ICT in education,” said Sharon Ries of
Digital Education Institute (DEI).
