Academic results have improved immensely and absenteeism has dropped at Abel Motshoane High School in Mabopane — the country’s first mobile, e-learning school with Wimax connectivity.

The school has been equipped with 100 Classmates, two teacher notebook computers, two desktops in the staffroom, broadband connectivity, teacher training, and an IT person, available once a week for troubleshooting.

The comprehensive and successful corporate social investment (CSI) strategy has been made possible by Intel, Telkom, Microsoft, the Gauteng Department of Education, EMS Industrial, Pinnacle, D-Link, Learn Things Africa and Mindset.

Intel donated 1000 Classmate PCs to under-resourced schools in South Africa this year to facilitate mobile e-learning and, over the next three years, the number will escalate to 5000.
