The eLearning Africa 5th International Conference on ICT for Development, Education and Training will soon take place in Lusaka. I hope you have your diary clear for the 26th through to 28th of May this month and if you already have plans you might just want to reconsider once you hear what I have to share!
This month the International Conference Workshops and Exhibitions (ICWE), organisers of some of the largest international eLearning workshops in the world, are hosting their annual eLearning Africa conference right here in Zambia at the Mulungushi Conference Centre in Lusaka!
Now if you are wondering what all the fuss is about, allow me to tell you. eLearning Africa is the main event on technology-enhanced learning in the entire African continent. The African continent stunned the world by leapfrogging several stages of traditional telecommunications development and a third of all African citizens are now mobile phone subscribers. So one of the hot topics under discussion will be whether future African students will learn from the telephones in their pockets or from the laptops in their classrooms.
It’s a definite ‘must attend’ for anyone with considerable interest in eLearning or anyone involved in eLearning strategy, implementation or management. This year marks the 5th anniversary of eLearning Africa and it will be celebrated in style with a range of informative and innovative sessions in addition to the main exhibition.
Some of the great offers this year’s conference is promising are:-
- To show people how to keep up with major issues in this educational area
- Latest developments and trends in eLearning
- An opportunity to encounter and benefit from the opinions and experience of acknowledged industry and education leaders and high level policy makers
- How to choose various technologies, product and services … and so much more!
In 2009 the conference took place in Senegal and attracted about 350 educationalists. This year with Zambia being the host country, there are definitely hopes to surpass the standards. It is a conference to see and not just hear about, so you absolutely don’t want to miss it!
