Addressing the virtual audience, Flow’s vice president Simone Martin-Sulgan said she was thrilled to see students embracing education through technology.
“With this partnership we have gone from promoting ICT in education to enabling education through technology. Technology which is now undoubtedly considered a utility as important as electricity and water. Through pennacool.com’s e-learning platform, I am thrilled to see so many of our students embracing education through technology, long in advance of it becoming mandatory.
“This partnership, established since 2009, has seen us grow from strength to strength. The focus has always been on making studying easier for our young students.”
Noting that “our model remains and continues to be free access to this e-learning platform, which is available 24/7,” Martin-Sulgan concluded that the inter-school championship “continues to be another motivating force on a school level.”
