Here’s how we could do it

While working to embed Project-based Learning in schools, E³ has also responded to the crisis of COVID-19 by creating TeacherConnect – a WhatsApp-based communication platform for supporting teachers. Teachers, parents and learners can access HealthCheck on TeacherConnect 24/7 by saving the number +27 60 060 3333 to their contacts and then messaging the word ‘hi’ to start a conversation or do a HealthCheck.

HealthCheck and TeacherConnect

The TeacherConnect platform has been developed as a way of empowering and supporting teachers  by providing access to useful content and resources. Over time, it will also be available for learners and parents. HealthCheck is the first tool to be available on the platform and it plays a crucial role in facilitating the reopening of schools to teachers, learners and support staff.


Developed for the South African National Department of Health by Praekelt.org, HealthCheck is already being successfully used by HIGHER HEALTH for tertiary institutions across the country with just under 1.5 million users and almost 3.5 million checks.


As the first step in the Department of Basic Education’s protocol on Screening, Testing and Linkage to Care, teachers are encouraged to do a daily HealthCheck through the TeacherConnect platform where they will answer questions relating to COVID-19 symptoms and risk.


The HealthCheck tool also issues receipts after users complete their pre-screening self-assessment, providing educators and support staff an endorsed declaration of their risk level with a validity period of 24 hours. It will be extended to learners and parents in a phased approach.
