A3: Building Standards for the Integration of Technology in Education: Teachers, Students and Administrators

EVENT LEADERS:

  • Hala Salih Mohammed Nur, University of Khartoum, Sudan
  • Nafisa Abdou Hassen Ahmed, West Kordfan University, Sudan
  • Salha Mohammed Abdo, Sudan Open University, Sudan

DESCRIPTION:

The integration of technology is vital for the development of education in Africa. However, integration must be regulated if a digital gap, between those who have access to technology and those who do not, is to be avoided. Integration also places responsibilities on stakeholders and creates a new relationship between students, teachers and administrators. These issues can be regulated by building a framework for standards to integrate technology in education.

This workshop is an interactive workshop, in which participants will share their knowledge and expertise, in order to build a standard framework to regulate the integration of technology in education.
