ADvTECH intros edtech platform to African schools
Following the success in South Africa of its proprietary digital learning platform, private education provider ADvTECH has announced plans to expand the platform to schools in the rest of Africa, next year.
ADvLEARN, a platform designed by MathU for ADvTECH, was rolled out across the company’s South African schools in January 2023.
The platform uses AI to generate personalised learning paths for each student, by providing teachers with insights to monitor student comprehension and help the teacher to tailor teaching to individual student needs.
According to the company, ADvLEARN will be expanded to ADvTECH’s schools across the rest of Africa in 2024. Crawford International Kenya will be the first to roll out the platform, at the end of January 2024, followed by Gaborone International School in Botswana, in February 2024. ADvLEARN will also increase its coverage to include Makini Schools in Kenya.
The platform will assist students with the Cambridge Curriculum in Mathematics (years 7 to 12), Physics (years 10 to 11 (IGCSE), and year 12 (AS Levels)), and Chemistry (year 10 to 11 (IGCSE), and year 12 (AS Levels)), according to the company.
"We are confident that we will be able to replicate the excellent results achieved by our students in our schools across Africa," said Desiree Hugo, academic head, ADvTECH Schools.
Darren Purdon, academic project manager, ADvTECH's central academic team, said the education group had formally reached agreement with the developers to ensure the ‘continued integration of ADvLEARN across all ADvTECH schools, including those in the rest of Africa’.
