Due to the disruption of the academic calendar 2020, brought about by the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, Mekaela Academies developed a unique online learning platform https://mekaela.online meant to bridge the gap between teachers and students who were at home.
Online learning has the advantage of creating virtual classrooms that aren’t confined by physical infrastructure and learners can study at their own pace at the comfort of their homes.
In light of the above, we discovered that access to good quality internet-enabled devices was a challenge to many of our learners. Therefore in partnership with Watoto e.v. https://watoto.de/en/about-us/ we managed to get over 100 tablets donated to our candidate classes, i.e. Standard 7 and 8 & Form 3 and 4.
These devices did put a smile on many of the student’s faces and have made it easier for them to access academic content.
