Last year in October Cape Town experienced the first ever Google Summit in Africa hosted by SchoolNet and Parklands College at Parklands College. It was presented by the amazing EdTech team from the USA and it was an exceptionally inspiring event for teachers in the classroom as well as anyone involved in education.
