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. If you would like to read more about what happened at the Google Summit in Cape Town or look at the various presentations please do visit http://za.gafesummit.com/
Parklands videoed some of the sessions and SchoolNet has placed two of them on the SchoolNet website. Hopefully there will be more to follow:

A Demo Slam comprises a series of very short presentations by teachers on cool ideas related to education. This session was extremely popular and a load of fun.
