Social conversations: How to keep children learning at home. And you don’t need material resources

Typically, children from low-income homes lack access to resources for online learning and they are seldom exposed to books or regular literacy practices such as storybook reading.

Without the help of a teacher to guide the learning process, it may be difficult for them to use the materials schools may have provided during lockdown. When this gap can’t be bridged by preschool or school, there’s a risk of leaving their potential untapped, never to be fully developed. This becomes evident in academic achievement later in life.

Guest: Dr Andrea Juan-Research Specialist, Human Sciences Research Council

Guest : The President of NAPTOSA (National Professional Teachers' Organisation of South Africa), Mr Basil Manuel
