New technologies combined with a pioneering spirit to improve lives are already changing the way we learn, work, and play. How are African youth shaping their identities and navigating different learning spaces with these technologies? How are universities, governments and the private sector working together to grow a culture of innovation on the Continent? Are new technologies fundamentally disruptive to tradition or do they open up space for the digitisation of tradition?
These are some of the key questions that will guide the conversations at eLearning Africa 2013; register now to take part in Africa's largest annual conference on ICT for development, education and training.
Elearning Africa 2013 will be held from May 29th to 31st in Windhoek Namibia.
Knowledge and partnerships
E-learning can be an easy and very accessible way to improve knowledge, education, capabilities and skills, thus building capacities.
