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.
