Tablets the New Generation Technology
By Nana Zuke
ICESA a college registered with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) is a dedicated institution that is constantly equipping students with advanced tools to achieve excellent performance with the tablet initiative.
ICESA campuses in Durban and Pietermaritzburg receive thousands of students each year, all-eager to further their education and get entry into the working world. ICESA’s commitment to providing the best educational resources and producing quality students that are adequately equipped for excellence resulted in the tablet initiative.
The tablets help students in terms of the meeting assignment deadlines and simplicity in their studies. Thus making it easier for them to handle their workflow on and off campus. Preloaded with monthly data, students can download their study material on their tablets which they can access from anywhere at any time.
Educor, the holding company of ICESA launched the tablet initiative across its various brands as the new generation is all about technology. These are individuals living at a time when technology is constantly evolving. Some come from homes with limited resources and cannot be provided with the tools to help in their studies.
Siqiniseko Mninjelwa, a first-year Travel and Tourism student at ICESA said he can access all his emails that the college sends him from his phone. Keeping him constantly updated about campus affairs. “These tablets are very helpful, we love doing our work and we are constantly on the internet. Our parents cannot afford to buy us expensive phones, so this came in handy. We can load our study guides on the devices and this has brought some order to our lives,” said Siqiniseko Mninjelwa, a first-year Travel and Tourism student at ICESA.
Senzelwe Khomo, also a first-year Travel and Tourism student who lives in Lovu, which is an hour away from Durban city said that travelling to and from campus can be quite a hassle, more especially when she has assignments due. The tablet and data save her time and money as she can get some work done from home.
Education and technology go hand in hand, one complements the other. In order for students to really maximise their capabilities, they need tools to assist them and make the time they spend at college much smoother and more productive.
ICESA is registered with the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) and offers full-time and part-time courses. Visit one of the campuses in Durban or Pietermaritzburg to find out more.
