Teachers, get your tech on at EduTECH Africa 2018

This year will be the fourth instalment of the exciting EduTECH Africa conference and exhibition. We are excited to attend and to learn more about EdTech solutions available to schools. The conference also features some excellent speakers who will inspire us to become better teachers in the 21st Century.
With six streams and over 150 speakers each discussing gripping topics and overflowing ideas, the conference will inspire change in the African EdTech industry.
By bringing together the thought leaders in education from across Africa and the world, EduTECH Africa will inspire the audience. Educators will be challenged to
think differently.
There are different streams to attend, including Early Childhood Development, K-12 Learders, K-12 IT and Special Education Needs.
