Interactive lesson plans helps you keep up with curriculum from home
13 May 2020
The Western Cape Education Department recently launched a new lesson planning platform intended to assist teachers, parents and learners with learning at home.
The platform would allow teachers, parents and learners to access weekly lesson plans and resources that were in line with the curriculum and focused on the key concepts/skills/values to be developed when covering subject topics over the school year.
The interactive platform included all subjects covered each week in the curriculum and contained resources, activities, images, stories, lesson plans and video lessons.
It provided an opportunity to “keep up with curriculum” from one’s own home!
To expand access to these lessons, a new WhatsApp interactive platform was developed. Lessons via this platform would be sent to teachers via district directors and subject advisors. These could then be distributed to learners and parents via their teachers. By just touching on the Resources or Lesson Plan buttons per subject, anyone using the lessons would have access to related resources, activities, images, stories, lesson plans and video lessons.
