Intel inks education deal with South Africa govt

Wednesday 12 March 2014 | 12:09 CET | News
Intel South Africa has signed a MoU with the Department of Communication (DOC) to support local education programmes. Intel will provide Intel Teach and Intel Learn Program training without fees to South African teachers selected by the DOC. They will become master trainers, responsible for the training of teachers in their respective schools. Intel will train two master trainers per DOC selected school. 

The Intel Teach Program has been helping educators around the world integrate technology into classrooms, in order to engage learners in their studies and empower them with the critical skills they will require to succeed within the global economy. To date the program has trained more than 10 million teachers in more than 70 countries. 

The Intel Learn Program provides opportunities for young learners within developing countries to learn key skills needed for the workplace. This program focuses on technology literacy, problem solving, teamwork and collaboration. Intel Learn's curriculum is delivered within an informal education environment, such as community technology centres and after-school programs.
