The Post e-learning Africa conference Seminar was a unique experiment designed to Take Action to promote the greater use of ICT in Education in Uganda. The seminar’s theme was “Taking Action to implement ICT in quality Service Delivery and as a Bridge to Unite Generations.”
The seminar was held on a cost-sharing model between KAWA, Ministry of Education and Sports, Learn with Grandma, Trinity College Nabbingo and the participating schools. Each delegate contributed 100,000/= (one hundred thousand shillings) to cover the seminar costs.
The small surplus helped fund the establishment of a national network – e-learning Uganda and the Digital Inclusion Centres in Mubende and Kibaale, housed in the now redundant Teachers Resource Centres. We believe this to be the first National network for e-learning in Africa.
In organizing the Seminar, KAWA was responsible for organization, provision of books, CDs, training materials, certificates and payment of facilitators. Ministry of Education and Sports was responsible for policy and overall monitoring and evaluation.
