Khaya Holdings, in collaboration with Limkokwing University and the ministries of Education and Communication, on Friday launched a television programme called Edu-Reloaded at Leribe English Medium High School in Hlotse.
The programme, which seeks to help students and teachers tackle Mathematics and Science, was piloted on Lesotho Television on February 22 2014 and now airs every Saturday at 9:30am.
Speaking at Friday’s launch, Deputy Prime Minister Mothetjoa Metsing said technology was a basic necessity in education, hence the importance of Edu-Reloaded.
“Technology is a must among learners because they need to know more and go beyond classroom-teachings,” Metsing said.
“It is our conviction, as government, that the Edu-Reloaded programme will assist teachers and students in reshaping the country’s educational landscape.
“It is time this nation put more effort on electronic learning as it will not only help children but also cut costs.
“A tutor will be able to disseminate information to thousands of students simultaneously through projects of this nature.
“Through collaboration with Econet and the Commonwealth of Learning, 100 schools will be afforded internet services,” Metsing said.
Speaking at Friday’s launch, Queen ‘Masenate Mohato Seeiso said she was delighted at such an innovative programme, adding however, she would like to see the initiative covering more subjects.
“I will be much happier if more subjects are addressed through this programme, especially Sesotho, since it is our mother tongue,” Her Majesty said.
Meanwhile, 13 students who excelled in their JC and COSC examinations last year, were presented with monetary prizes and trophies at Friday’s function, courtesy of
