Wessel Theron

Topic: Innovative teachers panel

Wessel is 26 an Afrikaans teacher at Bishops Diocesan College.  He completed his BA Humanities degree and PGCE through the University of Stellenbosch and a Theology degree through the Satellite campus of the University of North-West.  He is married and lives in Durbanville. Wessel is one of the five winners of the Microsoft Innovative Teachers forum.  His project entailed his Grade 8s to work in pairs and create music videos by matching proper images to the lyrics of a song or translating a song and singing it themselves.  This was a perfect opportunity to improve vocabulary, comprehension, visual literacy and be entertained while learning.  His aim was to bring Afrikaans into their technologically driven worlds
