Supernews: Focus on the tertiary drop-out stage

Supernews, is a citizen-generated, citizen-funded news and idea network that encourages young South Africans to change the content of the news as we know it. Recently it challenged students across the country to:

–        Find out what the drop-out levels were on their campuses

–        Find out what the major reasons behind drop-out are

–        Come up with innovative ways to address these reasons, and reduce drop-out rates

Entries poured in from around the country.  The eleven best ideas were selected and showcased at the Super Stage event held in May 2012. 

The second runner-up concept was EQ’uo.  EQ’uo is an anonymous online social networking forum where students can post challenges that they face on a daily basis – in an engaged and safe environment – and be motivated or encouraged by other students who comment and post solutions that have worked for themselves.  Below is the presentation outlining the concept:
