Digital Education For The Disabled

On July 8, 2016, Orange Foundation will for the seventh consecutive year award top achieving students in the Special Needs Category (SNC) at the Botswana Examination Council (BEC) Annual Excellence Awards. The SNC recognises students’ hard work and excellence in their final examinations, despite the situation they find themselves in.

This award reinforces Orange Foundation strategy of supporting digital education for Batswana. The award promotes digital education for students living with disabilities by offering them digital tools such as laptops, JAWS software and tablets.

“JAWS is a software that makes learning for the visually impaired easier as it converts written text into spoken words and reads out the info in the computer screen through speakers or headphones.

With such advancements in technology, there is no reason why visually impaired students can’t be as technologically advanced as their counterparts,” said Boga Chilinde-Masebu, PR and Foundation Manager of Orange Botswana.

Chilinde-Masebu stated that she was impressed with the benefits of the prizes as some previous recipients have been able to learn different skills through the use of the laptops and the software.

“We hope that empowering the students through the use of digital education tools will change their lives and help them become self-sufficient and independent,” concluded Chilinde-Masebu.  This Award ceremony is organised by BECl in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and Skills Development, to recognise high performing students in their PSLE, JCE and BGCSE examinations.
