The world has been shaken by the mass spread of COVID-19 and this virus has made its way across our nation. We are impressed at our Government’s response and are doing all we can to help slow the spread of this virus. This is something that is only stopped by us all working together.
Part of the policies put in place during this crisis is the closure of our schools which, by our estimate of the numbers, means that around 12 million learners will be unable to attend school for a certain period and hence will have their education affected by COVID-19.
Advantage Learn is a premium education provider and we’ve been building online learning solutions for the past 5 years. We know that the skills and the teaching resources we have developed are some of the best available to learners. With that in mind, we have taken the decision to give away access to all of our high school Mathematics content, for free, to every learner within South Africa whilst the schools are closed. Why have we done this? To quote our President, “Together we are stronger”. We are a proudly South African company and we love our nation and want to help in any way we can. The one way that we can help is by allowing South African high school learners to continue learning their Mathematics over this interrupted time. Our Mathematics experts recommend 30 – 60 minutes per day of online learning to keep your maths ticking until you get back to school.
Here is our guide to accessing our Maths Online resources for free:
We know that you are currently trying to navigate this difficult, unchartered territory right now and don’t want to bombard you with options to help, only the right ones. We believe that getting your learners to use our Maths video resources is a great way to keep them busy even when they might be confined to their homes. We encourage you to use our Maths Online platform by prescribing lessons to your learners that they can do in their own time. You are able to follow your learners and check in on their progress and, in our experience, it is most helpful if you can tell them exactly what you had planned to teach and guide them to the right Learning Path on AdvantageLearn.com.
This is all very new and so each week we will be hosting a live webinar on Thursdays at 2 pm to show you how Maths Online works and to have an open conversation about what we can do to help, and how we can work together. We want to give you our ideas, but we also want you to come to this with your ideas as well as any problems you might have that you need help solving at your school. This is an open session for anyone to join with the focus being “Learning how to use Advantage Learn’s free Maths resources whilst schools are closed”.
To sign up for the webinar and receive reminders, information and a recording please ask our team for the registration link for the next event. We look forward to chatting with you digitally on Thursdays. #EducateDontContaminate
