The Ulwazi Concept--Virtual Interactive and Collaborative Classrooms of the Future
Beyers, R. N.
South African Journal of Higher Education, v21 n6 p748-760 2007
The purpose of the study was to demonstrate that two schools which were geographically separated could be digitally included using broadband radio connections, interactive white-boards and other technologies to enable virtual interactive and collaborative lessons. The project was established to overcome a transport problem of bussing learners from Mamelodito St Alban's College in the Tshwane area as part of an outreach project for them to receive supplementary tuition. The most significant finding was that the results of Grade 10 Science learners in a remote school improved over time. (Contains 1 figure.)
