EdTech Summit Africa is an innovative technology conference shared with educators across South Africa and Swaziland FREE of charge. We are focused on teacher training program development addressing education equity and social justice issues by working to implement creative and cutting edge technologies in schools and communities. In our 3rd year, we are continuing to make a significant impact in reaching students and teachers through our free technology training professional development workshops. Last year we impacted over 900 educators and this year we are positioned to increase that number. We will be presenting at 8 different locations across South Africa and adding a new 9th location in Usutu Forests, Swaziland.
Our mission is to reach the underserved education landscape, primarily targeting schools and educators who don’t have access to technology training. We believe that all teachers should be able to be inspired by the possibilities that edtech can create for their learners, regardless of funding or location. We also believe in continuing our commitment to communities where EdTech Summit Africa has been hosted in past years so that we are building upon the tech learning instead of being a once-off conference. Our hope is to reach as many teachers as possible, especially from under-resourced schools and communities. We are geared towards teachers with a range of tech knowledge from very little to advanced. It is not just for computer teachers and techies… we hope to reach teachers from all subject areas excited about integrating technology into their classroom practice.
2015’s EdTech producing partner organizations are: LEAP Science and Maths Schools, K2 Productions Global, the Global Teachers Institute, and Teach With Africa.
