As the years go by, it becomes apparent to us that one generation slowly takes the back seat, whilst another becomes prominent– introducing Generation Z, South Africa’s next generation of leaders, creatives and entrepreneurs.
It is no secret that Generation Z will give the rest of the World a run for their money through their agile mindset and innovative creations. It is, however, our job to make sure we equip this generation with all the necessary skills they will need to take the World by storm.
Some of the ways we can assist this generation is by providing educational platforms to them – especially in an age where technology is pivotal in our lives. With that being said, here are a few of the educational applications HUAWEI AppGallery can provide to keep the youth of South Africa well-informed and to prepare them for their futures.
Nothing is scarier than one’s final year of high school. Anxiety creeps in and the final examination marks will literally determine every learner’s future. Fortunately, there is Matric Live, which is currently South Africa’s top education application with over 200 000 active users. This application was created to prepare students for their final year of examinations – through the utilisation of visual and contextual learning. Not only does the app provide unique forms of studying, it also provides past examination papers to practice on. Better yet, they also prepare practice papers to test your knowledge on your subjects and theories.
Even though matric is a whirlwind of a year for many students, every year of high school is challenging! And for that reason, AppGallery has JDST Solutions, which is a hub that holds up to 36 different educational apps for students ranging from grades 8 to 12. Some of the most popular apps on the hub are those related to Mathematics and Science. The best part about these applications is the fact that they do not require mobile data to operate. Therefore, students can roam the apps freely without stressing about an internet connection.

It is clear that the manner at which students consume information is evolving. It is even more apparent that our youth’s way of thinking is evolving.

Who knows, maybe we (much sooner than later) will learn a thing or two from them as well.
