The Intel AI Laboratory was unveiled shortly after a press conference at which media members were able to ask questions. The event was successful. Orbit TVET college and the Ministry of Higher Education expressed excitement and gratitude to Intel for making this program possible and for their continued support. Mr. Tichelman, VP EMEA territories, helped give the event gravitas, which media and South African partners appreciated. So far, media sentiment has been very positive.  This event positioned Intel as a thought and technology leader in Africa and a company involved in the country’s future. The VP’s presence increased the event’s impact.

The second event of the day was a Round Table conversation with VP Maurits Tichelman and 12 key media members discussing Intel’s global investments, supply chain, product leadership, Tech as a force for Good and semi-conductors. A key media partner streamed the Round table live.

At the opening of the Round Table, Intel and NAPTOSA (a South African Teachers Organization).  signed a Memorandum of Understanding. The MOU represented the next phase of Intel Skills for Innovation implementation in South Africa. Senior officials from NAPTOSA were also present to meet with our media and explain the significance of this cooperation to them. The event was moderated by a Senior South Africa News Anchor from ENCA and was a tremendous success.

Intel’s intentions for the future of South Africa, particularly in the areas of supply chain, education, and eSports, attracted substantial media attention. The event provided the media with an opportunity to interact with Mr. Tichelman and obtain a global perspective on Africa-related topics. This was supplemented by significant contributions from Intel Africa employees who were able to provide local perspectives. The insights given by all Intel team members contributed in positioning Intel as a thought leader in the market.

Fairlands Laerskool, is a government primary school based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Under the guidance of the SGB and IT manager they implemented CLEVERTOUCH displays into their classrooms in 2019.

The school is currently using the CLEVERTOUCH V Series Displays in their   Maths and Science classrooms.

The classrooms had a mixture of interactive whiteboards and standard whiteboards. The cost of the projector globes and the annual license fees of the software being used, as well as the cost of teacher laptops, became too expensive  to maintain. Hence, they looked for an alternative solution.

We chose CLEVERTOUCH because it is an all-in-one solution. With the built in android device, teachers do not require anything else to teach. Teachers are able to walk into the classroom and teach immediately. We researched many other solutions and this was the most cost effective and easiest to use solution,” says Francois Pienaar, IT Manager.
