The main focus of Khanya is curriculum delivery through the use of technology. It is therefore understandable that technology implementation consumes a large portion of the resources available to the project. Curriculum delivery is, however, technology independent, which means that the particular technology platform is of lesser importance. It is for this reason that Khanya does not wish to get involved in debates about 'proprietary versus open source' technology. All technologies are considered, and those that are deemed appropriate at the time and for a particular purpose are selected.
Technology can be used in a variety of ways, such as:
Khanya has various sub-projects focusing on some of these different uses of technology in education. As resources become available, more of these uses will be piloted. Please see the section on Special Sub-Projects for details about current initiatives in this regard.

A 'standard' Khanya model has evolved over the past few years, which caters for the majority of schools within the province, and which has the necessary flexibility to accommodate schools with unusual requirements.
This standard approach revolves around a Project Plan, which is completed for each school. Within this plan, provision is made for standard specifications (which can be altered according to specific needs). For further details on specifications, click on the relevant item below:
