Listen: Reimagining Technology in Higher Education

 

The constant advancements in technology create vast opportunities to improve classrooms, but it can cause problems, too.

While the creation of mass open online courses provides both students and teachers flexibility, with regard to time and location, it can suffer if the infrastructure is not able to maintain fast, consistent connectivity.

In 2006, the Partnership for Higher Education in Africa, found that the existence of a national framework did not necessarily guarantee a successful environment for educational technology.

After observing 9 African countries, they found that having a national policy in place is futile without a concrete plan for funding and implementation.

It appears that getting the latest tech into the classrooms is only a small part of creating a stimulating and practical learning strategy.

This will be just one of the many topics discussed at the 3rd edition of the Education Innovation Summit in Sandton, South Africa.
