CoZa Cares, a non-profit organisation in Midrand(who have recently been listed on SchoolAdvisor.co.za), is the project manager for the annual ISPA (Internet Service Providers’ Association) SuperTeacher Competition.
Are you a winning SuperTeacher?
The ISPA SuperTeacher Competition gives educators an opportunity to showcase their skills in using Information Communication Technologies (ICT) to improve the educational environment within their school or community.
There are three categories of entry to choose from. You could win a trip to iWeek In Johannesburg in September as well as other fabulous mystery prizes. All educators currently teaching in schools throughout South Africa are eligible to enter.
The hashtag for the Competition is
#ISPASuperTeacher. The focus this year is on digital equity and finding a solution to the digital divide, issues that are particularly pertinent in South Africa. Enter the 2016 ISPA SuperTeacher Competition AND take advantage of a very special offer on ICT!

Top achievers: meet the 2015 ISPA SuperTeacher Competition winners
Each received fabulous prizes – Mustek generously sponsored state-of-the-art eBeams and a Beng E5500 Digital Projector for each winning teacher while CoZa Cares sponsored their attendance at any conference of their choice.
Mabore Lekalakala teaches at Toronto Primary School in Limpopo. She says that she is a different teacher since entering the competition, “My learners and I have become part of a huge virtual classroom that extends far beyond the confluence of my community and we are expressing ourselves in a global context.”
Tinny Molepo’s project was called ‘Techno reading goes viral through Skype’ and was about teaching Grades 3 to 6 learners how to use ICT skills to boost their command of the basic but key skills of reading and writing. Tinny teaches at Mothibedi Combined School in Limpopo.
Matthew Haines is an educator at Woodlands International College and the founder of the TechTeachers.co.za website, a blog and collaborative resource for CAT teachers and IT teachers. Matthew encourages teachers to enter the competition. As he says, “You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. The experience is worth all the effort you put in. Keep your passion for your subject and students and just go for it!”
