Operation Phakisa goes online

Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe and Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga will launch the education leg of Operation Phakisa under the banner ‘’ICT in Education: Leveraging ICTs to improve Basic Education’’, on Sunday evening, the department said.

Over the past 20 years government had worked to improve the quality of teaching and learning in the basic education sector, the department said in a statement.

“As part of government’s commitment to improving and administering quality basic education, [it] adopted the Big Fast Results (BFR) problem-solving methodology which was developed and successfully implemented by the government of Malaysia – an approach that seeks to facilitate the development of detailed plans with a strong theory of change, advocating for strong monitoring, evaluation, reporting, and accountability frameworks, which are essential for the successful implementation of national goals and priorities.”

The ICT in Education main lab would take place at the Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg from Sunday to October 2, where key stakeholders and decision-makers would gather for four weeks to produce detailed and measurable plans, as opposed to higher level planning, the department said.
