Executive Summary

FundaWethu is reading software that is designed to deliver reading lessons to Grade 1-3 (foundation phase) children who are learning to read in a multilingual context. Starting from a premise that the system should be both educative and entertaining, the system allows literacy researchers or teachers to construct rich multimedia reading lessons, with text, pictures (possibly animated), and audio files. Using the design-based research methodology which is problem driven and iterative, the authors followed a user-centred design process in creating FundaWethu.
