The people of Africa are known for their spirit of innovation. We say, “ ‘n boer maak ‘n plan” – loosely translated, this Afrikaans proverb says that a farmer always comes up with a plan.
But how innovative are we when the server in the computer room goes down? Owing to a variety of reasons, it often takes an unacceptably long period to get the server going again. During this time the computer facility is not used and curriculum delivery can not take place.
Or is that what we allow ourselves to believe?
Is there a Plan B (B is for boer) that educators can fall back on, so that when the network is down, each individual workstation can still be used by learners in their quest to come to grips with the curriculum?
