Key questions

But are the changes to education and skills development systems sustainable? How are African youth shaping their identities and navigating different learning spaces with these technologies? And are new technologies fundamentally disruptive to tradition?

These are some of the key questions that will form the focus of eLearning Africa 2013, which takes place from 29-31 May 2013 at Safari Conference Centre in Windhoek, Namibia. The call for proposals is now open and will close on 11 January 2013.

Under the overall theme of 'Tradition, change and innovation', eLearning Africa 2013 calls for an open examination of the experiences, projects, investments, policies, partnerships and research that are shaping the Continent's learning landscape.

Regarded as the continent's largest and most comprehensive capacity development event for ICT-enhanced education and training, eLearning Africa invites African digital pioneers, educationalists, free thinkers, developers, the youth and all those with an interest in Africa's ICT-enhanced learning industry to submit a proposal and share their views on the following sub-themes:
  • The present: innovation and learning under the African sky
  • The past: Africa's rich learning traditions and legacies
  • The future of learning in Africa

In its eighth year, eLearning Africa encourages a diverse range of conversation methodologies, including research papers, demonstrations, workshops, tweetups, hackathons, blogfests and presentations.

Held in a different country each year, eLearning Africa is the annual meeting place for the high-level decision-makers and practitioners who are shaping Africa's ICT-enhanced learning industry. The conference is accompanied by an extensive exhibition and demonstration area where leading international eLearning manufacturers, suppliers and service providers present their latest products and services to a global audience of over 1 500.
