Second EOH - Delphi IT Schools Event 11th May

On the 11th of May 2013 we have successfully presented the second SA Delphi IT schools Living Lab project workshop hosted by TUT and EOH based on the IT CAPS curriculum for FET Schools SA. Presentations were done by Lecturers from the Departments of Computer Science and Web and Multimedia of the Faculty of ICT from TUT.

I am very proud of all the teachers and the kind support from EOH with regard to sponsoring the venue and providing nice food and drinks. Thanks to Dillon Gray and Kerri-Lyn of EOH for all your preparation and hard work. Thanks also to every teacher that attended with dedicated teachers like this IT has a bright future in FET schools. 
Thanks also to Embarcadero for all your support as well, and for the FREE compiler.

For the two events of the 4th and 11th of May about 80 teachers and subject advisors from various provinces attended. The provinces include: Gauteng, Limpopo, Free State, Mpumalanga, and North West.   

Some teachers drove more than 400km’s to attend the event. IT programming content, using Delphi relating to the CAPS document for grade 11 and grade 12 was presented.  

For the event of the 11th of May 2 industry presentations was done by companies, who use and support Delphi.  Representatives from the companies were quite excited when they learned what is done in FET School level. Both Saturday’s events were a major success!
