Melekoglu, Macid Ayhan; Erden, H. Gülsen; Çakiroglu, Orhan – South African Journal of Education, 2021
Efforts to diagnose students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) have increased in recent years in Turkey.

Blake, Beverley; Mestry, Raj – South African Journal of Education, 2021
Major political changes since 1994 have initiated the pace of change in the South African education system.

Vos, Elize; Fouché, Nadine – South African Journal of Education, 2021

As a sub-study, in this article we report on the oral proficiency of isiZulu-speaking pre-service…

Moodley, Maglin; Dlamini, Reuben – South African Journal of Education, 2021
Education in the 21st century must have a vision that will support and empower teachers to face the demands of the digital age. The use of information communication technology (ICT) in education can serve this end but ensuring access to digital resources will not address the digital disparity. Culture and language play an equally important role in…
