Edu-Bike Africa: Legacy Project
Edu-bike Africa is a practical and inspiring educational programme which was developed by Education Africa around the theme of the bicycle. Edu-bike Africa encourages both educators and their learners to explore the world of learning together. Using a workshop approach with an outcomes-based focus to promote entrepreneurial skills, it offers them a series of 30 prepared lessons (of 35 minutes each). The programme is fun, dynamic and useful, and teaches learners about making money, travel, health and much more.
Education Africa designed workbooks for both educators and learners. The lessons are all language-based in that they require verbal interaction, comprehension and a rich variety of skills.
Mathematical calculations, measurement and problem-solving activities also encourage learners to work accurately on tasks which are exciting and relevant. The educators continually refer to the facilitator’s guide, which contains explanations of the aims of lessons, answers to all questions and activities, as well as guides for enabling the facilitator to assess the lesson outcomes and the performance of his/her learners.
Successful workshops have been held in KwaZulu Natal, Mpumalanga, North West and Gauteng.
167 000 learners have been impacted and received their very own Edu-bike Africa workbooks.
