  1. Its always fantastic to read about friends, that emerge from a University with a degree. Well done, Banasco!

    We also need and should continously remind ourselves, that we are living in an era driven and dominated by technology, but that we are not leveraging the potential of technology to address these issues i. e. if looking towards educational abilities and the “digital possibilities” available to us. Digital content solves not only an access issue but will also power new content that can future-proof our people, while enabling them to succeed.

    Digital education is vital to any country’s future, hence we cannot succeed by clinging to an outdated and broken educational system. It’s time to adapt, re-think and redesign how we share knowledge, learn and teach in the digital era. Technology is almost inseparable from our daily lives, it has changed the world and will continue to evolve. However, the critical skills needed now and well into the future are not being developed and taught, leaving the youth with a challenging and questionable future.

    The World Economic Forum reports that by 2020 there will be more than 1,5 million new digital jobs globally. In a world characterised by technologies that blur the lines between digital, physical and biological, education needs to evolve rapidly to meet the demands for a new type of knowledge worker. We need a stronger plan to prepare the African youth for the digital economy and to play productive roles within the digital revolution.

    While there is already a great choice of digital learning platforms, a better use of these could effectively prepare the future generations of Africa, if applied with more will and a “digital mindset”.

    The World Bank says that supporting access to education is one of the most certain ways to end poverty: Platforms such as Udemy, Khan Academy and LinkedIn Learning already provide excellent opportunities to further Students education. South African ‘EdTech’ companies like GetSmarter, Obami and Suits & Sneakers University are working to provide modern course content. However, we need to look at more global, more collaborative content initiatives and broader access to technology and free Internet access.

    Given the scale of Africa’s education challenge, embracing a digital mindset and collaborating with strategic partners to address access and content, education could dramatically improve. The possibilities are endless as technology has made learning even more possible. In a continent that cannot build new universities to scale with population growth, alternative education formats need to become the default option, with short courses, certifications and online training becoming more common place. Industry recognition of these alternative education options is also important as not every student will want, or be able to, complete a traditional four-year degree.

    What the “fourth industrial revolution” and knowledge management has to offer is infinite. Students are no longer restricted to desks, textbooks and school programmes. The future students needs bettrr access to countless videos, podcasts, learning models, apps and digital communities. All this is possible with access to the Internet and more so if the content is affordable.

    The future of education is technology-driven. Digital teaching and learning platforms will play a critical role in making education not only a success, but more widespread and effective. Government should start collaborating with Tech companies from the private sector to equip their nation with critical skills.
