Dear List Members

Suitably qualified South African companies or individuals in developing learning material and GIS are requested to provide a proposal and a quotation on the development of a manual or workbook in support of the GIS In Schools programme.

GIS has become part of the geography schools curricula for grades 10 -12 as indicated in the National Curriculum Statement.  Additional information on the geography curricula (Grades 10 - 12) can be found from this address http://www.education.gov.za/Curriculum/Curriculum.asp 

Please note that the manual / workbook would need to target:
1. teachers
2. learners
3. access to computers
4. no access to computers 

Copyright of all work done would either be to the State or under Creative Commons.

Communication will be with shortlisted companies or individuals and would be required to provide a demonstration or make a presentation at their expense.

Please do not hesitate to contact myself for any clarity.

Closing date 16 June 08
