African Content Award Winner

m-Learning & Education



ReThink Education allows learners to access engaging content using a social platform via any device, while giving teachers the ability to track, monitor and observe user progress. An average high school learner does not engage in learning by means of traditional PC-based educational software. In the students preferred use of technology, they interact & use ‘chat’-styled community platforms such as Mxit, South Africa’s largest social network. The Rethink Education platforms feed into this style preference by delivering educational content broken down into ‘bite-size bits’ and presented through a chat interface. ReThink provides the complete grade 8 – 12 Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Natural Science curriculum in multiple languages ReThink Education has over 400 000 active users.
