Integrating classroom content and computer technology

Futurekids has developed a brand new series called Future-Fun CAPS.  This exciting new integrated series has been developed to assist teachers.  It provides the teacher with an e-book that contains a lesson plan and media resources that are fully aligned and integrated with CAPS. 


Future-Fun CAPS is an innovative curriculum based on the Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement for primary schools that integrates computer education and the different subjects that pupils do at school such as Mathematics, English, Life Skills, Natural Science, Social Sciences Arts and Culture, Economic and Management Science and Technology.

Why do we implement electronic teaching and learning?

Because it is there! Learners grow up with technology expectations.

Interactive technology addresses different learning styles.

Attention Span disorders are addressed.

Difficult topics are covered easier by experienced presenter, or animated content.

“Screenagers” – expect certain level of entertainment, hence the concept “edutainment”.

Self Correcting and immediate feedback – no need for teacher to mark work in red pen and only reflect hours or days after activity has been completed as interactive technology can immediately provide feedback.

“Time Fillers” – meaningful 10 – 15 minute activities when it is difficult to keep learners’ attention.

Improved teaching in learning: interactive technology includes remedial, repetition, revision and reinforcement of material in a fun way.

Starter activities – with or without teacher assistance, engaging learners’ attention immediately while the teacher/other learners are preparing/entering class.

Full ICT integration, whether it is in the computer lab or classroom.

These lessons can be presented in two ways:   


1.      The class teacher teaches both the content, by using the media resources provided, as well as the technology (IT Skills) to the learners.  Learners will be invited to the front to complete instructions given by the teacher on the white board or they can complete activities on their computers.


2.      Two different educators teach Future-Fun CAPS:

a)    The educator in the classroom teaches content using our media resources and reviews/consolidates the learning area content through e-learning.
