The conversation around technology – the challenges surrounding its implementation, the benefits and potential drawbacks - was a central point of focus at the Education Summit 2017, held at the Radisson Blu in Sandton on May 31.

 

Elias Chipimo, Advisor to Mwabu, delivered his presentation 'Replicating Success at Scale: Early Lessons for Africa' which can be viewed here

 

The one day conference brought together leading education experts, policy makers, service providers and EduTech entrepreneurs to discuss the latest innovations in Education.

 

Topics covered included: 

Investing in ICT for education

Connecting with the youth via mobile and social media

The role of digital technology in education

Developing and implementing education policy

Unlocking sustainable finance for education through non-traditional sources

Best practice: Incorporating innovative tools in teaching and learning

A vision for the school of tomorrow

 

The changing role of the teacher was another theme which ran throughout the Summit. While delegates agreed that technology was not a suitable replacement for teachers, they also felt it important to shift the focus away from what technology can do for teachers towards what it can do for their pupils.
