Seminar run by kids and teenagers

Arnold Ramasedi attended the K-Net Seminar for Parents which was held at the Microsoft Conference Centre in Sandton.

The whole seminar was run by kids and teenagers between the ages of 4 and 14. Very young kids demonstrated the packages they used at K-Net and also introduced parents to some of the teaching methods used at K-Net.

The teenagers presented their topics through multimedia presentations done on PowerPoint. One of the teenagers presented the benefits of using a spreadsheet by showing parents the profits made by an on-paper company.

"What impressed me most was the way in which the kids communicated with the K-Net mentors and the audience during the seminar," says Arnold. Arnold registered his son Kamohelo Ramasedi (11) on K-Net's TechnoBlast course.

Kamohelo will be continuing with the advanced level courses until he is ready for programming in Visual Basic. Arnold says that kids today need to know how to access information and need to grow up in a computer environment to cope with the demands that will be placed on them when they enter the business world.
