On Saturday, 16 August 2014, the RLabs Academy opened its’ doors for the second time this year.
The Academy opened its’ doors with the following three courses: Moms 7.0 (introduction to social media platforms – just for moms), Entrepreneurship and Photography. It was awesome to see some students coming back to learn more as well as many new faces who has joined the Academy for the first time.
Since it is Woman’s Month, the ladies in the Women in ICT Faculty decided to spoil our moms with some pampering by doing nails, showing them how to make cards in a creative way, allowing them to create their own jewellery and even signing the moms up onto Gmail.
In the Digital Faculty, Ricky took the students through what they could expect over the next few weeks in the Photography class. They also discussed finances as a photographer and got to know their fellow classmates as well as the facilitators and co-facilitators.
Entrepreneurship, which forms part of the Management Faculty, did an activity called “Speed Dating”, which is an exercise to help the students to get to know one another better. They spoke around how entrepreneurs are wired differently, what makes you itch (as an entrepreneur) and also the power of influence.
This semester is off to a great start and we’re excited to see the growth of every student and to be part of this movement of learning and opportunity.
