Abstract

Teachers in South Africa are confronted with a new educational paradigm and rapid development in information communication technologies. In South Africa there is still a considerable lack of locally developed and relevant educational resources on the Internet. Students from the Teacher Training College in Pretoria were involved in a project to develop relevant online learning support material for Afrikaans First Language teachers. Their participation in this project not only empowered them with ICT skills, but also made them possible facilitators of change who can help to disseminate educational technology throughout the entire school system.
