RESEARCH SEMINAR REPORT: Harnessing Education Technology as a Response to Covid-19 in 7 African Countries
The ‘Harnessing Education Technology as a response to COVID-19’ is a GCE project funded by the European Union (EU) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) through the GIZ-BACKUP Initiative. The GCE project is complemented by seven country-level projects that are implemented by six national coalitions in Burundi, DRC, Madagascar, Malawi, Namibia, Rwanda, and Zambia and one Teachers’ Union in Namibia. In this project, GCE supports the seven national-level project partners to engage in research, monitoring and planning with government institutions, including evidence-based advocacy for education technology (Edtech) and digital solutions in public education settings.
In the framework of this project, GCE convened representatives from each project partner coalitions and government representatives from Burundi, Madagascar, Malawi, Namibia, Rwanda, and Zambia for a two-days seminar held at Southern Sun Rosebank Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa, from the 27th to the 28th of September 2022.
