Transforming education in the Western Cape

10 April 2015

African Ideas has been very active in creating and driving the e-education strategy and approach taken by the Western Cape Government (WCG).

African Ideas drove the concept of a schools wide area network (WAN) as an anchor of the provincial wide broadband. This fundamentally changes the way that schools can use technology to teach and learn, ultimately leading to improved education outcomes.

African Ideas CEO, Mr. Nirvesh Sooful, facilitated the first session with Education officials and other stakeholders, introducing concepts and ideas that eventually became the Western Cape Education Department's e-Vision document.

Emanating from this, an e-education business case was developed, extensive work was done looking the infrastructure, content, training, classroom and learner technologies, etc. that was needed to make this vision happen. African Ideas advised the WCG and the WCED throughout this process.
