Nasrec Provides Room For Infected Matrics To Write Exams

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 - 12:30Author: Raigan Cloete

Many provinces have gone back and forth with regards to whether matriculants who test positive for COVID-19 should write their final exams this year. Luckily for those matriculants in Gauteng, Nasrec has agreed to allow them to write their exams on their premises.

Article Category: News

Since Monday, 16 November 2020, Grade 12 learners who tested positive for COVID-19 have been moved to Nasrec, in Johannesburg, to write the final year exams.

These learners will be quarantined at Nasrec for about 10 days, to ensure that they recover fully before returning to school.

The department has chosen to quarantine these matrics, as COVID-19 cases continues to increase in the province.

Steve Mabona, Gauteng Education Department spokesperson, says that the education department will be working with the Department of Health to ensure safe transportation of those infected learners.

The learners are transferred to the facility by ambulances to combat the spread of the virus.

Many parents were afraid and unsure whether their children would be given the opportunity to write their exams, however with the help of Nasrec their children can finish their matric year. Which they are very happy about.

Before these learners are transferred, their parents need to give their consent and so far all parents, of those who are infected, have given their consent.

Nasrec has been organized in such a way to provide all learners with their own isolated space and in addition they have set up an ICU facility in the case of a learner needing special care.

Mabona says that so far about 10 have been moved to Nasrec and if the number increases they will be able to accommodate them.

Where To Study Teaching In South Africa

Monday, November 16, 2020 - 17:13Author: Terrique Alie

Education and training has become a part of our everyday lives.We live in a world where we learn new things each and everyday.  It provides us with the knowledge that we need in order to develop our own perspective of life. This helps shape our opinions and build our viewpoints around different topics in life.

Article Category: Education

It is important to strive towards receiving proper education that contributes to your quality of learning and, at the same time, helps with your self growth and development. Students that are pursuing an educational degree need to know that it is a very broad spectrum. You may specialise in areas such as early childhood education, health and physical education, primary and secondary teaching or vocational education. 

Here are a list of colleges where you can study education and training:

  • UNISA
  • Cornerstone Institute
  • College of Cape Town
  • False Bay TVET College
  • Damelin (Mowbray Campus) 
  • CPUT (Mowbray Campus)
  • College SA
  • Boston City Campus

Click here to view a complete list of colleges to study education at.

Having an educational degree, it opens many doors of opportunities to a variety of teaching and administrative careers in different settings. For example:

Pre-school: Pre-school teachers and teachers assistants generally work with toddlers between the ages of 3-5 years. Here, kids are introduced and exposed to learning about their social and emotional development. Students that are pursuing a degree in early childhood development can help develop the academic needs of this age group.

Special needs: Having a degree in teaching children with a learning disability takes a lot of patience and positive reinforcements. The main purpose is to help them find ways to help themselves with their learning difficulties and become stronger and more resilient. 

Colleges or universities: In order to become a lecturer, you need to have a master’s or doctoral degree in a specific subject area. Here, lecturers are working with  traditional and non-traditional college students who are interacting with people from different ethnic backgrounds. If you would like to become an academic advisor or counselor at an institution, it is important to have an in-depth understanding of education and how to help students navigate their way through college.

For those students that have a passion and love for the profession, pursuing an educational degree will provide you with transferable skills which will be beneficial for your career. It is important to remember that education plays a significant role in shaping and creating your future.

Children Can Learn Maths And Coding Online With Smartick

Monday, November 16, 2020 - 16:41Author: Raigan Cloete

Due to COVID-19 not all parents are comfortable with sending their children to tutors. However, with Smartick children can learn maths and coding from the comfort of their own homes. Smartick is an intelligent online program which covers all aspects of maths and includes many brain games.

Article Category: News

Smartick is an intelligent online program which uses gamification to incentivize learning and covers all aspects of maths and includes many brain games. Their games focus on developing logic, memory, focus, critical thinking, reasoning skills.

Smartick is available on all devices via their app or website, for ages 4 to 14.

Philip Von Ziegler from Smartick, described gamification as a way of encouraging learning through creating an avatar which then generates rewards. The rewards create incentive to return to the app and complete the next session. As their main aim is to make learning fun.

Smartick is mainly a maths and coding program which allows children to learn in only 15 minutes and then they enter a virtual world where they take part in tutorials, play brain games and develop their skills in a safe environment.

This program can not only be used at home but also at school. Schools would get a discount depending on the number of children who sign up.

Both teachers and parents are able to access the progress of their children at the end of every session.

The program sends a detailed report of the child’s progress via email. Parents can also view previous sessions, individual questions, mistakes and how long the child took to complete the question.

All this information can be used to help see which areas children need to pay more attention to and helps children get better marks at school.

The program provides parents with tutorials which they could use to help their children understand the content better.

Smartick helps design a personalized learning experience for the child, which takes into account their strengths and weaknesses.

Parents are also asked when registering their children, whether or not the learner has any learning difficulties. This is asked so that the program can create a lesson plan around those challenges.

Smartick caters to all learning challenges, namely ADHD, asperger’s, dyscalculia, and dyslexia.  

It does not follow a specific curriculum but a global, holistic curriculum. So this is the perfect program for children who would like to have fun while learning maths and coding.

Wits’ SRC Believes Tuition Fees Should Be Reduced

Monday, November 16, 2020 - 15:38Author: Raigan Cloete

Since March, university students have been learning from home and now they are currently writing their final exams from home. Which is why Wits’ SRC believes that student tuition fees should be reduced.

Advertisement

Article Category: News

eNCA spoke with Mpendulo Mfeka, Wits SRC President, about the issues regarding tuition fees. Mfeka believes that tuition fees should be reduced since students were not on campus, for plus minus seven months, to use any of the facilities.

Mfeka understands that online learning does have certain costs however he believes that the costs that accumulate while students are on campus are a lot more than the cost of preparing online lectures. And he feels that Wits should be taking this into consideration.

With regards to how much the tuition should be reduced, the SRC has asked that the reduction reflect the inflation percentage of the country.

Keeping the tuition fees at the normal price would not be fair on students as the academic year continues into next year which will increase the costs students have in 2021.

The rise in student costs may cause them to have to drop out or put their studies on hold until they are financially capable of finishing their qualification.

The only way forward would be for the university to present and justify its costs for the year. And then along with the SRC see how much of the fees should be reduced.

The issue of reducing tuition fees does not only apply to Wits but to all institutions across South Africa. However not all of them may be willing to see things from the students’ point of view.

The maths paper 2 exam was leaked a few hours before the exam. The Department of Basic Education has expressed its disappointment with the matter.

It is still unclear exactly how learners were able to gain access to the paper, but the department believes learners in Limpopo and Gauteng had first access to the leaked paper.

"The Department of Basic Education is investigating the matter to establish the extent of the leak. Early sources point to the confinement of the leakage to a few learners located in these two provinces," the department said.

The department will be working with the police in order to get to the bottom of the leak. 

"The investigating team is gathering evidence and a report will be submitted shortly. The Department will enlist the support of the Law Enforcement Agencies to assist with the investigation."

Anyone with information is encouraged to come forward to the department so those responsible can be dealt with. 

The department has asked all learners to remain focused as they have more exams ahead of them.

We are very disappointed that the Mathematics Paper II has leaked. We are still investigating the origins of the leak and want to assure the public that the perpetrators of this act will dealt with harshly @DBE_SA @ElijahMhlanga @GovernmentZA @NationalCoGTA @GCISMedia #MathsLeak pic.twitter.com/UVlT0BirY6

Health Minister Plans To Manage Cluster Outbreaks

Monday, November 16, 2020 - 13:45Author: Simbongile Makanda

South Africa has recorded more than 750 000 Covid-19 cases since the start of the pandemic. Some fear that the country is experiencing a second wave since the Eastern Cape and Western Cape have recently seen an increase in cases.

Article Category: News

Health Minister, Dr Zweli Mkhize said South Africa is not yet experiencing a second wave. At the moment, the government is trying to identify and manage cluster outbreaks.

He said it is too early to say that the whole country is experiencing a second wave, since cases are only increasing in some parts of the country. 

“We cannot say we are experiencing a second wave. It now depends how we manage it. We can contain this by our behaviour, by practicing non- pharmaceutical interventions,” he said.

Mkhize has asked South Africans to continue wearing masks, sanitising, keeping a physical distance and washing hands.

He said most countries experienced the first wave of infections before South Africa and in most cases, the second wave has hit them harder than the first.  

“Other countries are already experiencing a second wave. In some other countries, the second wave is higher than the first wave. These countries experienced their first wave earlier than South Africa,” he said.

More than 35 000 healthcare workers have been infected with Covid-19 and 338 lost their lives.

Mkhize said the government is doing all it can to protect healthcare workers from Covid-19. Despite the government's interventions, healthcare workers have been facing a number of issues at work and at home.

A recent survey found that 1 in 3 healthcare workers in South Africa has faced abuse in the workplace or at home during the Covid-19 pandemic.

"The primary reasons why doctors were emotionally or physically abused seem to be related to the implementation of the disaster management guidelines and regulations. So, patients, families, and relatives objecting or at times opposing wearing face masks, they struggle with social distancing and at times object to having to wait for appropriate treatment,"  said Dr Volker Hitzeroth, Medico-legal Consultant at the Medical Protection Society.

This is one of the reasons why the public has been urged to play its role by following the Covid-19 guidelines set by the Department of Health.

With the festive season coming up, Mkhize has warned that attending crowded events and get-togethers might not be a good idea. These super-spreader events could lead the whole country into a second surge of cases in the New year. 

“The day to day festivities need to be done differently and it’s important to start gearing ourselves to a slightly different Christmas. I’m not talking about the lockdown, I’m talking about changing the way we do it so that we don’t go enjoy and end up with an infection.” he said.

The minister will be paying a visit to the Eastern Cape to announce the plans that the government has for the Nelson Mandela Bay area.

Learners At Home Struggle To Receive School Meals

Monday, November 16, 2020 - 12:44Author: Raigan Cloete

Even before lockdown, school children have relied on schools to provide them with meals during the day, because many of them do not have enough food at home. For some children school meals are the only source of food for the day, which is why it is so important that while some children are still at home during this ttime that they receive school meals. However there seems to be some struggle getting these meals delivered.

Advertisement

Article Category: News

Equal Education's spokesperson, Nontsikelelo Dlulani, speaks to eNCA about the challenges facing learners now. Especially the issue on learners struggling to receive school meals.

Equalizer recently did a survey and according to this, during the rotation of learners at schools, only those who were actually at school received school meals, while those who weren’t at school did not.

Which is why Equal Education is requesting that the department address this issue immediately.

During lockdown was when the organization became aware that many children desperately needed those school meals while they were at home. The main problem that arose was the lack of delivery which took place.

Equal Education ended up going to court to ensure that the department did their part in providing learners with those meals. However, in the end it was the organization and others that took the initiative to monitor the deliveries.

While monitoring these deliveries, Equal Education has also been in contact with the department and they have asked that if providing meals to learners who are at home is not possible that those learners rather receive food parcels or vouchers so that they do not go hungry.

Recently Equal Education has launched a mobilizing program which is geared to educate families and communities on the importance of nutrition. This initiative has also made learners and communities aware that if learners live far away from their school, they can still go to a nearby school, on those days when they are not at school, to receive school meals.

With the school holidays approaching, many families are unsure about how they will provide their children with food, which is why businesses and the government should reach out and ensure that these families have food over the festive season.

What Is Civil Engineering And What Are The Skills You Need To Become A Civil Engineer

Monday, November 16, 2020 - 10:34Author: Terrique Alie

A civil engineer is someone that has a passion for design, construction and maintenance of public infrastructure such as roads, bridges, buildings and other big structural projects. They manage a broader range of projects which consists of transportation infrastructure and water systems. They apply their in-depth knowledge to enhance societies infrastructures to meet their basic human needs. Civil engineers play a vital part in maintaining society and without them, the public will not have safe and decent infrastructures.

Article Category: Course Info

During the execution of various projects, civil engineers conduct surveys, analyse sites and materials, evaluate estimated costs and the risks related to each project. When executing the project, they make use of complex design programs to plan structures and systems. Once the project begins, they need to constantly monitor the process to ensure that the project abides to the safety regulations and that when any issues arise, they have a solution to resolve the problem that has occurred. 

The field of civil engineering has a variety of areas which you can branch into such as; environmental, structural, and materials science engineering. Depending on your passion, you may want to pursue a career path as a civil and safety engineer, engineering or construction manager or a civil engineering technician. 

What are the benefits of becoming a civil engineer?

  • As an engineer, you will spend most of your “office time” on site and outdoors. They spend their days planning, making appointments, attending meetings and ensuring that all project requirements are being met. 
  • Civil engineering is a exciting profession as each project has its own unique design challenges and operational requirements 
  • They work closely with with contractors, architects and construction workers on various projects which allows team members to share their knowledge and ideas
  • Encourages creativity to continuously improve societies infrastructures 
  • There are lucrative job opportunities in both the public and private sector

What essential skills does a civil engineer need?

Technical skills: As a civil engineer, it is important to have an in-depth knowledge of physics and mathematics and various building design software systems. 

Communication: This is one of the most important elements required. Civil engineers interact and need to communicate with clients to identify their needs and relay that information onto the team members. Effective communication is important as everyone needs to be on the same level in order to achieve the desired results of the project. 

Project management skills: This includes various elements such as the cost of material, critical milestones, tracking deliverables and logistical aspects. Engineers must monitor the project's regulations and building standards. They have to identify any issues that occur during the process and must be able to resolve any site challenges.

Critical thinking: Engineers are required to come up with creative yet effective solutions for different project requirements. They need to ensure that their plans are aligned with laws of nature, safety regulations, available materials, and public safety.
