When the first CAMI (Computer Aided Maths Instruction) training started at De Vlei farm, one of the facilitators interrupted the lesson and asked anxiously: “Please go slow, I’ve never worked on a computer before.”
A person could sense that they were nervous but, fortunately as the day progressed their confidence increased. 52 Primary school children attend this aftercare centre and they follow a structured programme. At the end of the day, the same facilitator said: “Wow! I really enjoyed it and I’m no longer scared to use the computer.”
At the end of the second day they all agreed that the programme will improve student’s academic performance. All facilitators proudly introduced the computer lesson aimed at giving them necessary practical experience. Their excitement along with the children were tangible during the final session of the training.
