E-Learning Center in Zimbabwe

Eco-friendly Classroom

Mwenje Primary School’s E-Learning Center is an eco-friendly classroom, powered by solar energy and fitted with tanks to store harvested rainwater. The main purpose of the center is for the use of electronic technologies for students to access an educational curriculum, based on the Zimbabwe Government School syllabus. Malilangwe funded a large portion of the project, supported by a donation from a guest of Singita Pamushana. There are not many rural schools that have access to computer technology and our intention is not to divert from tradition or culture, but to prepare young people in rural areas for employment possibilities in the future.

2015

The Malilangwe Trust funded the building of this resource center.

2016

The classroom was furnished for 50 students, together with 50 laptops for lessons and it was equipped with a projector and laptop charging stations. During the same year, teachers of Mwenje Primary School did E-learning training and shortly afterward, they introduced students to the computers and E-learning principles. The children embraced this modern technology and we have enjoyed mapping their progress.

2017

Three students from Mwenje Primary School were chosen at the District level to demonstrate the use of a computer. A 7-year-old student made it into the National finals in a PASSAF computer competition whilst the other 2 students represented their school at a provincial level, displaying the use of a computer and the ability to draw shapes and use colors within a specified period of time. They also excelled in the identification of computer components.

2018

The E-learning Centre has donated a 3G router, and bandwidth for one year of 30GB per month, which further enhanced this educational tool. The service provider does ongoing training with teachers to keep the curriculum up to date. Pass rates for the E-learning curriculum are tracked at each grade level, setting targets for the end-of-year exams. The benefit of this will be to improve academic results from the Early Child Development level up to Grade 7.

2019

Mwenje Primary School’s E-Learning center was officially opened by The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education in September of 2019. Naturally, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected progress, but we hope the learners will resume using this resource center as soon as possible.
