improving education outcomes
Zibuza.net is an online community for teachers in South Africa that aims to improve the quality of education outcomes by elevating the status of teachers in society. The project, in partnership with the Department of Basic Education and other stakeholders aims to connect 433,320 teachers, spread across 25,691 schools in all 9 provinces, to impact 12,814,473 learners. We connect teachers with their peers and the multitude of stakeholders in the Basic Education ecosystem to create value by facilitating interactions around professional development, teacher support and appreciation.
The goal is to build a common platform for all stakeholders that will harness the collective knowledge, experience and investment to realise an increase in learner performance. Zibuza.net links to the strategic outcome-oriented goals of the DBE to improve the Quality of Teaching and Learning Outcomes: 1.1 Improve teacher capacities and practices; 1.2 Increase access to high-quality learning materials, and also supports the objectives outlined in the DBE’s Action Plan and Vision for Schooling 2025 as well as the National Development Plan 2030.
With regards to the UN Sustainable Goals, we support Goal 4: 4.1, 4.2 and 4c. We achieve this by working with Government to provide schools with ICT resources coupled with relevant teacher training to ensure that e-education initiatives deliver an improvement in the quality of education outcomes in South Africa.
