Mwabu rubbed shoulders with a wealth of education professionals, stakeholders and customers at three recent events in South Africa.
We attended EduTECH Africa 2017, the SchoolNet Conference in Johannesburg and EduWeek Western Cape in early October. The common theme of the conferences was around the future of education in South Africa, how technology, gamification and robotics may impact on it and 21st century learning.
Our team in South Africa met and spoke to attendees at the three events which included teachers, principals and department heads from across South Africa.
Throughout the week, we engaged positively with those who came, showing them the interactive e-learning content we have to offer primary school learners in maths and science.
The three events were well-attended and we were able to reach out to a good range of people who are based in one of the key countries we serve and provide materials for.
It was also good to meet educators such as teachers who could soon be using our tablets as part of daily life in their classrooms.
We ran a lucky draw prize for those who completed our questionnaire, researching the interests and needs of teachers and principals. The winner was the principal of Goo-Seleka Primary School in the NW Province, Reverend Segogwane Motlhoiwa.
Mwabu was also shortlisted for some awards at EduWeek and although we didn’t win them, we were honoured to have been in the running for the prizes.
The week was a success and we’re now preparing ourselves for the AppsAfrica Awards in November where we’re up for two more awards.
Our positive appearances at the three events come off the back of recent investment news, a well-received presentation in QwaQwa, South Africa, and the AppsAfrica nominations – all in the last few months.
