Sorry Learner A….. Mom and Dad will get it on their cellphones too !! On top of that, many parents are getting ICT literate in many aspects and fields of the digital cyberspace.

So, get your results to live up to “your name” = A. But remember, A+ is not the ultimate, just do your best ! Not all of us are in that “superhuman” category, but at least we can try our own best.

Some educationsts / people / man-in-the street will question this notion – your grades and symbols on the www !! Wow, not right !! Is it morally correct ?

Well, at many colleges and universities the student’ number, name, surname and symbols / percentages like B + D + FF / 70% + 55% + <30% are up in the Hallways and Foyers – for EVERYONE to see !! So to be on www – maybe more people will notice it, even your parents !!

Password protection, Albie? Of course, you are right about the cell phones … but parents need to be web-aware to use their phones to access the internet!

Granted – but very soon the next generation of parents will be digital experts.

My niece and nephew access university results online but their parents do not. They rely on the honesty of their children to show them results online. For the rest they rely on another family member to assist. No matter how much you try to convince them of the benefits, it does not help.

A colleague of mine frequently checks her results and that of her children online. Isn’t it better to check than to wait for weeks for a piece of paper to come? How long did it take for people to get use to the ATM? SOme people still just don’t use it and don’t want to be convinced of the internet’s benefits.
