The Royal Bafokeng Institute and the Lebone II College, in partnership with NorthWest Department of Basic Education, hosted the SchoolNet SA 2019 Digital Learning Conference between 26 and 28 June 2019. Four hundred and sixty eight delegates attended the conference, including teachers with a passion for digital learning, ICT coordinators and national and provincial eLearning officials.
Conference attendees enjoyed three days of professional development aligned to the following conference themes: Digital Resources in the Classroom; Cultivating Creativity; Leadership in Digital Education; Gaming, Coding and Makerspaces and eAssessment Strategies and Tools.
We are grateful for contributions from Microsoft Philanthropies and Telkom, whose sponsorship towards the conference made it possible for more teachers from under-resourced schools to attend. We also wish to thank Lego Foundation for sponsoring keynote speaker Ollie Bray to present a range of workshops on Learning Through Play.
