The vision of the Ukuqonda Institute is to promote excellence in the fields of Mathematics, Physical Science and Technology at all education levels in Southern Africa.
The overarching perspective informing the vision of Ukuqonda is that learning should provide for sense making, promotion of conceptual understanding and the development of valuable know-how and strategic skills.
This “formative education” vision is in stark contrast with the prevailing view of schooling as an industry to produce marks that can be used as evidence of achievement by learners, teachers, schools, education departments, government. The formative education vision induces the interpretation of curriculum content in terms of identifying significance and purpose of content, critical and key understandings, application of knowledge, and ways in which specific content can be utilised to develop general disciplinary practices, skills and habits.
