There are nine EdTechSummits for teachers talking place in South Africa this month, all free! (Note this is not to be confused with the upcoming EdTechTeam’s Google Summits at Parklands)
Here us a message from the EdTechSummit team:
”We’re excited for EdTech Summit Africa 2015! Here are some important details:
WEBSITE: we are updating our site continually with workshop schedules, descriptions, presenter profiles, and new blogs! www.edtechsummitafrica.com

Twitter: @EdTechsummitsA: main hashtag: #edtech2015
Tumblr blog: edtechsummitafrica.tumblr.com
DEVICES: This is a hands-on learning Summit! We will have devices available for attendees to use in all workshops, but if you prefer to bring your own tablet, smartphone, or laptop device to practice with for the mobile based sessions, please ensure you bring it fully charged.
We find that the greatest learning happens when there is a group of several attendees from one school who can share and practice what they learned in Summit workshops throughout the year.
See you there!”
