Henk Arangies is a passionate teacher who believes that education should cater for the individual learner and different learning styles, without compromise to the other learners in the classroom. To achieve this complicated challenge he believes that every teacher should be a sympathetic individual, well trained and competent with teaching principles and competent in the use of all the tools available in his/her classroom.

He believes that education should incorporate the sensible use of technology in curriculum delivery / integration. “It is not about the technology but it is about the information that flows through devices and how the necessary skills develop in learners.” 

He developed a strong understanding of the changed classroom environment from his earliest teaching days at Durbanville Primary School. He found academic substance for his theories when he did his M.Ed in Curriculum Development in 1995. His thesis title was, “The use of a computer center in a Primary School.” This research (1995) already indicated a path where the need for technology integration in the general classroom was emphasized.

Mr Arangies attended various conferences in South Africa and other countries: England (3); Scotland; Hong Kong (2); Denmark and Italy. These international conferences also included visits to schools.  He attended the International Conference on Teaching and Learning with Technology in Singapore from 7 – 10 April in 2014.  There he gained extensive knowledge in the use of tablets (iPads) in the Singaporean schools. His visit to Canberra Primary (one of the Singapore Future Schools) was significant in the sense of deployment and management of devices.

He is a 21st Century Educator and would like to make sure that the Four C’s on 21st Century education (Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration and Creativity) are embedded in the education a learner receives at Eversdal Primary School.

Mr Arangies regularly speaks at different events on different ICT/CURRICULUM topics.
