Computers for kids is an integrated program, a learning activity endorsed by ECDL/ICDL. With the uniquely integrated approach provided by e-learner, young learners are equipped with key concepts of computing skills and its practical applications. It is a modular course of progressive ICT skills acquired across 7 units, of which 5 units for silver level of basics and 7 units for gold, an advanced level. To complete this learning activity, Lesson Linx is used to link together and collate all resources.
This learning activity is essential in our school since students get the key foundation of computing skills. Using the modules, each grade is given an adequate start and the progress is amazing. The kids are very interested in computer which is why they get high marks in both theory and practical.
We hope more schools join this program in Swaziland to enrich younger learners with fundamental computing skills, so they will be able to study on their own after primary level.
Computers 4 Kids, an educational ICT company formed in 1995, provides an integrated ICT curriculum to primary schools in South Africa as well as West Africa, England and Ireland.
Computers 4 Kids currently services well over 400 schools in South Africa on a monthly contractual basis using our fun and dynamic integrated OBE aligned ICT curriculum that your children have learnt to love. This unique curriculum ties in with the classroom themes and topics that are being taught by your class teachers, which means that your learners can consolidate academic themes, cognitive skills and topics that are being covered in the class whilst mastering valuable ICT skills.
Computers 4 Kids is very proud to be partnering with the ICDL South Africa (International Computer Driving Licence) where they have endorsed our curriculum to international standards. e-Learner, as the endorsed product is now known, is unique in that we are the only company in any of the 148 countries where ICDL operates to have an English primary school product endorsed. The certification is made up of a “Silver” level for Grade R to Grade 4 and a “Gold” certificate for Grades 5 to 7. This is exciting news for this school and for you as parents - your son or daughter can leave primary school with an accredited certificate thereby giving him or her the edge over pupils from other schools.
To this end there is a cost involved with the certification of your child/ren. A once-off registration fee of R50.00 per child for the issuing of the Skills Record Card and the certification process at the end of the assessment process is required - a nominal amount if one looks at the value of receiving an internationally endorsed certification for the price of a movie and soft drink!.
Your school will be contacting you shortly with regards to methods of payment and the exciting way forward in this regard.For further information, please visit our website at :
