MOBIREADATHON COMPETITION FOR HIGH SCHOOLS LAUNCHES FRIDAY 10TH!!!
TO REGISTER, SELECT MOBIREADATHON ON THE MENU ON THIS HOME PAGE
City of Johannesburg Libraries are proud to expand the Mobireadathon Reading Development program that was piloted in 2022 and presented at the Taiwan Reading festival.
More than 15 high schools from all regions and surrounding areas (including some private schools such as De LaSoul and Oprah Winfrey Academy, ) have joined this competition and campaign to engage learners in using Mobile Devices for reading.
This competition aimed at encouraging productive use of mobile devices to find educational digital content will run from February 10th, when learners from all grades can register and participate until April 25th. On April 28th, 10 finalists from Grade 8s of each school, will be selected, based on the highest pass marks and time of submission. They will read selected stories online, in preparation for the finals event to be held in June 2023 at a central venue. Winning teams will receive prizes for their school and individually.
Learners can start registering from the 10th of February.
Our librarians have approached several schools and through word of mouth, there has been an increase in the number of schools that would like to participate. To be fair to all schools, the quiz questions will only be available from the 17th so that more learners can register.
This program combines both digital literacy and reading development objectives. Learners will gain skills in navigating mobile devices for more than using social media and games, but for their education.
For enquiries, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
