Liberty has partnered with the Mindset Network to deliver Maths and Physical Science education to students all across South Africa using a mobile app — TenFold Education.
The app offers educational content, extra learning material for students from grade 10 to 12 and is available for download on Android and iOS smartphones.
“With a long history of delivering Maths and Physical Science skills, Liberty recognised that the way learners in high school absorb information has changed dramatically over the years. Mobile technology has reduced attention spans and increased the demand for short, informative pieces of information,” says Nomaxabiso Matjila, Liberty’s Lead Specialist for Corporate Social Investment (CSI).
In the 1990’s millions of school children tuned into the Liberty Learning Channel to watch educators, like William Smith, teach Maths and Physical Science in a studio using just a projector. While this format was relevant back then, the learning landscape today has completely evolved.
“This partnership with Mindset Network is a much needed innovative evolution,” adds Matjila.
The extension of TenFold is a 60-minute interactive television show on DSTV Channel Mindset TV. It offers a full learning experience aligned to the CAPS curriculum and is broadcast every day during school terms. The content on the TenFold App provides interactive nuggets of the same information, and houses hundreds of hours of instructional video resources, and exam-style assessments.
Mindset’s CEO, Dylan Green says, “The format of the TV show and the layout of the app are specifically designed to deliver pivotal educational information to the learners quickly, effectively and on demand, in a medium they understand. Learning is not limited to classroom style teaching, as the app encourages engagement through interactive question and answer sessions, curriculum updates and much more right in the palms of the students’ hands.”
