In order to assess the overall state of digital education in Africa, Microsoft conducted a survey at this year’s Innovation Africa Summit, held in Kenya. The summit is the largest annual gathering of high-level officials from the wider education community in more than 40 African countries, who come together to discuss challenges and opportunities around education, ICT, science and technology. The survey revealed that there are a number of challenges that still hinder the adoption of e-learning across the continent.
Respondents highlighted the limited funding for devices, a lack of stakeholder and teacher support as well as inadequate infrastructure, a lack of locally made digital resources, and cultural considerations among some of the greater challenges affecting the implementation of digital education in curricula.
