ADESSA members participate in WCED workshop

In a bold move, the Western Cape Education Department (WCED), conducted a workshop with the theme Relevance and Impact of Technology – How Do We Measure It? in Cape Town on Saturday, 15 September 2018. Delegates were invited from four sectors: school principals, WCED officials, academics and the business sector.  The latter sector was co-ordinated by ADESSA.

Twelve members of ADESSA attended the event and had the opportunity to discuss challenges, and ways in which the business sector can assist the department to ensure that technology has the desired impact.

This workshop was promised to be only the first in a series of such workshops, during which ADESSA will explore the best way for its members to form meaningful partnerships with education.

The strategic partnership with EduWeek has worked well for ADESSA.  Many of our members exhibited at the event, and a number of other exhibitors showed great interest in the activities of ADESSA.  We hope to welcome some of them on board in the near future.
