AFRIKAANS FAL - 5.1.Grade 3

It's learning made easy

DorKk is also an invaluable learning and revision tool for all Grades.

DorKk provides unrestricted access to all our extra lessons for every students needs.

Why dorKk?

As parents and guardians in South Africa, we all want the very best education for our children.

Whether we homeschool our kids, or send them to a public or private school, we walk the entire journey with them from Grade 1 to Grade 12, and we do everything we can to make sure they have a firm foundation for life after matric.

But for busy working parents, it's tough to juggle the responsibilities of home, work, and education.

Who's tried to cook dinner while revising phonics with one child, and attempting a Maths problem with another?!

A good education also comes at a cost. Besides paying for school fees, you have to budget for all of the added extras. Uniforms, stationery, sports equipment, and the inevitable ‘extra lessons'.

...

dorKk is all about helping you and your children take charge of their futures through a quality education.

dorKks Value

Life gets complicated. And it gets expensive.

  • Wouldn't it be great to have an affordable, accessible, online platform to stream pre-recorded tutorials and lessons?
  • What if you could cook dinner while your child watches extra lessons online to revise for their accounting exam?
  • What if all of your kids could stream video tutorials by qualified teachers at the same time, on-demand?

Accessible and affordable extra lessons

What if we told you, you can stream high-quality, pre-recorded lessons on ALL South African CAPS , IEB and Cambridge school subjects, from Grade 1 to Grade 12 for the cost of a Netflix subscription?

That is what dorKk.online is all about.

...

What is dorKk?

It's an online learning platform that you can watch anywhere, and cancel anytime.

It offers thousands of pre-recorded lessons to help your child with exam preparation, revision and online learning. PLUS, it's all in one affordable package, which can be cancelled at any time.

Through this platform, your child can access over 5,158 lessons by 46 highly qualified and experienced teachers. All of the lessons are in line with the South African CAPS ,IEB and Cambridge curriculum.

Remember William Smith's maths lessons on TV?

From Coding to English to Accounting, all of the key subjects are covered, at every level

We empower the learners of South Africa.

Extra Lesson

Example 1

dorKk's dynamic teacher, Caitlin van Duyn will teach your child all they need to know in a series of lessons specifically aimed at their age and level of understanding. From “Programming with Scratch” to “Creating art with Code”, your child will be able to learn, revise, practice, and re-watch the lessons as many times as they need to in order to grasp the concepts.

Extra Lesson

Example 2

If you're worried that your Grade 8 child is falling behind after missing months of school during the Covid-19 pandemic, you can help them supplement their learning through the dorKk platform. Teacher, Petra Burger will help them with their Afrikaans word and sentence structure, and they will learn all about "Mechanical Systems and Controls" from Technology teacher, Dineo Khasu.

Additional Benefits of dorKk

The advantages of learning from home.

Kids who are nervous about asking questions in the classroom benefit from the video-style teaching on the dorKk platform. Instead of raising a hand in class, they can just rewatch sections of the lesson until they understand the concept.

The video learning is also beneficial for children who struggle with attention. If they feel like they are losing concentration, they can simply pause the video, take a break, and regroup. They never miss out on key information.

Revision

DorKk is also an invaluable learning and revision tool for Grade 12 learners

Matrics who are studying for their Maths, English, Afrikaans, Science, Physics, Accounting or Life Sciences exams will be able to revise and supplement their learning thanks to the recordings by dorKk's dynamic teachers.

...

Extra classes to assist your child with revision are at your fingertips.

Its learning, but smarter

Utilise the tools that are right for your child's education.

DorKk provides flexible learning options for every students needs.

Revision with Dr Melanie Jacobs

Matric is a stressful year for all – including parents!

Matrics who are studying for their Maths, English, Afrikaans, Science, Physics, Accounting or Life Sciences exams will be able to revise and supplement their learning thanks to the recordings by dorKk's dynamic teachers.

The Final Steps

12 years of school

It's the final step in a 12-year school journey with your child. Their results in the Matric exams will determine whether or not they are accepted into further education, and will ultimately influence their future careers. Whether your child wants to enter a trade, become an entrepreneur, or work in the medical field, their Matric results will play a key role in their career path.

As parents, we know it's important that they have access to supportive learning resources to help them get the best matric results possible. The dorKk platform is like having an entire school curriculum in your own home. All you need is an internet connection, and your child has access to everything they need to know from Grade 1 to Grade 12.

Get extra classes from the best teachers

  • They can learn all about acids and bases and their chemical interactions with matric Chemistry teacher, Dr Melanie Jacobs.
  • They can study the prescribed poems and books with English teacher, Dina Malan.
  • And they can analyse budgets and assets with Accounting teacher, Wendy Wood.

...

COVID-19 Pandemic

dorKk can help fill in the education gaps left by Covid-19 pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic had a major impact on schooling, and despite the best efforts of many schools and teachers, our children have ended up with gaps in their learning.

From Grade 1 to Grade 12, our kids build on the knowledge that they learn every year, but if they miss out on key information, it could have a major impact on their understanding of a subject. This is especially important for subjects like Maths, Science, and Accounting.

...

Unlock endless potential with our additional learning resources

It's learning made easy

DorKk is also an invaluable learning and revision tool for all Grades

DorKk provides flexible learning options for every students needs.

As parents, most of us don't have the time or training needed to help fill these gaps, and extra lessons can get really expensive. These days, we also have to consider the price of petrol when transporting kids from school, to sport, to tutoring. It all adds up.

That's why dorKk is such an affordable, accessible, and effective option for extra lessons and online tutoring.

It's a key learning resource that every parent should consider.

Your child can access any lessons they need to, and can even go back to earlier Grades to make sure they have a solid understanding before moving on to new, more complicated concepts. They can watch the video tutorials as many times as they want to.

...

Help with homeschooling

For parents who are homeschooling their children

dorKk is a helpful additional resource which can be tapped in to. Just like homeschooling, the platform allows children to be in charge of their own learning pace. They can watch lessons over and over again until they come to terms with a concept.

Yvonne van Wyk is a Counsellor and Educational Therapist who homeschools her children.

"Even homeschooling parents can benefit from online resources such as dorKk which offers curriculum-based pre-recorded lessons that children can view and engage with at their own pace,” says Yvonne. “This kind of educational resource can be a powerful lesson planning tool when done under the guidance of a caring and enthusiastic homeschooling parent. "

So how does dorKk work?

Get unlimited and unrestricted access to every grade, every subject and every lesson on dorkk

When you sign up to dorKk, you gain access to the entire platform. Your child will be able to watch videos in all subjects from Grade 1 to Grade 12, as many times as they need to, for no extra cost. There are 3 plans available, with the key difference being the number of devices that can be used with the platform.

For families with more than one child, it's best to opt for the standard or premium package so that your children can access it at the same time.

Just like Netflix, they will each have their own unique profile on the platform where they can bookmark key information and select subjects that are relevant to them.

One of the major benefits of dorKk is that there is no minimum subscription period. Your children can use it for as long as they need to, then unsubscribe.

And if you just want to test out the platform to see if it would be right for you and your family, you can opt for a 3-day FREE trial – no card required.
