Mark East, General Manager Operations – Microsoft WW Education, recently visited Egypt to meet with government and school leaders to discuss the future of education in the country, and how to solve some of the current challenges.
During his visit, Mark was encouraged by several examples of how educators are using technology to improve learning outcomes. One of his key learnings was that focussing on the teachers and empowering them to use technology must be prioritised. Off this base, they can pass on their knowledge to their students.
Mark discovered an enthusiasm among parents, teachers and the public sector to secure technology and improve infrastructure. There is significant potential to capitalise on this enthusiasm and enhance learning through ICT, especially with the commitment by all parties, including the Egyptian government, to invest in young people.
