North West University gives a listening ear to a M-Ubuntu Project on the march

One of South Africa's biggest Universities, North West University, hosted a briefing by the M-Ubuntu team at their Mafikeng Campus.

Intrigued and curious of the M-learning phenomena, Professor Thapelo Mamiala from the Faculty of Education said earlier that they "welcome (the) opportunity to have collaboration with M-Ubuntu". The University made every effort to keep to this intention when they accepted an invitation from the M-Ubuntu team to introduce the project and explore collaboratory possibilities.

Some 15 delegates from the University met with Lucy Haagen, Sydney Teme and Dorothy Ratshefola to explore three possibilities with the University: a possible student teacher internship collaboration, a science project and the provision of training for teachers in technology assisted learning.

   There's been a stirring in the region since the M-Ubuntu team arrived at their Ramosadi Project site to coach teachers in the use of Mobile phones to increase meaningful learning participation in the school.
