Higherlife Foundation recently exhibited Ruzivo Smart Learning at that 2016 edition of the Harare Agricultural Show, in an effort to increase its usage. The Harare Agricultural show ran from the 22-27 August and over 500 parents and children visited the Higherlife Foundation/Ruzivo booth which was housed in the Econet Wireless stand.
The Harare Agriculture show attracts more than 500 exhibitors, over 180 000 people annually and Higherlife Foundation took this opportunity to increase awareness of Ruzivo Smart Learning as well as encourage trial to increase usage of the platform. To-date close to 200,000 scholars have been registered on the platform all efforts are now being directed at increasing usage of the platform by these students.
Students who visited the stand got a chance to try out Ruzivo on laptops that were provided at the stand and most of them left the stand with the appreciation that Ruzivo will give them access to unlimited sources of information; connection between subjects and promote their critical thinking.
The majority of the teachers that visited the stand also acknowledged the work of Higherlife Foundation through Ruzivo in complementing governments’ efforts in providing education resources to improve pass rates in the country. ‘Ruzivo is easier and effective; helps to further develop teachers’ computer skills; and brings out the best in students’, said one of the teachers.
The annual Harare Agricultural Show is the premier event organized by the Zimbabwe Agricultural Society (ZAS) for the national facilitation and promotion of agricultural development in Zimbabwe. The Show presents unique business opportunities for national
and regional organisations and is the highlight of many Harare residents’ annual entertainment calendar.
