Abstract:
The paper reports on a small-scale survey carried out in a northern Namibian urban school about mobile and computer experiences as well as attitudes towards the use of Oshikwanyama in an ICT domain among grade 11 students. This paper provides some discussion of Learner Centered Education (LCE) as a useful framework for research into emancipation through technology use. It highlights the importance of African language teaching in a globalised world. The experiences and attitudes of students in relation to ICT and Oshikwanyama are presented and discussed. The findings indicate a pervasive access and use of technology, particularly mobile. Attitudes towards the use of an African language such as Oshikwanyama in the ICT domain highlighted some articulation on the part of the students. These encourage the further exploration of the potential for the use of developing ICT resources in an African language as a pedagogical tool, which is the topic of a broader study by the authors.
