About Gerald Charles Accom

I have been involved in teaching for the past 39 years. I have also been actively involved in local affairs, affording me the opportunity to serve a wide range of sport- and community- based organisations. I was a member of the LGNF (Local Government Negotiation Forum) just before the dawn of the new South Africa and served as a local government councillor from 1985 to 2000. I then became a member of the Executive Council of the Makana Municipality in 2000. I served as chairperson of the Local Economic Development Committee until 2005. After I took a break from local politics I enrolled as a part-time student at our local university. (Rhodes) I have successfully completed an ACE in Technology Education, a B.Ed (Hons) degree in ICT and Technology education and a M.Ed in Science Education. My main interest is developing e-lessons for teachers. I am really passionate about the potential of ICT in education and would dearly appreciate any assistance and guidance in this regard. I am currently a part-time lecturer for the B Ed ICT and B Ed Science groups in the Rhodes Education department.
