A2K in the Age of Apple, Google and Microsoft: South Africa’s Vulnerability and Promise with Andrew Rens

Government leaders responsible for basic education are moving toward mass adoption of digital technology as the primary means for providing educational resources. But government lacks a vision of education that makes use of the opportunities presented by the Internet. This myopia in a global environment in which Apple, Google and Microsoft are intent on re-inventing educational resources risks ceding further control of the future of educational resources to private actors in the global North. (lunch served for registered attendees)
