Mark Matunga, Education Manager for Microsoft East & Southern Africa
Microsoft has been involved in eLearning and ICT for development in Africa in a variety of ways for many years, be it in 'Training the trainer' workshops for teachers, in eGovernment initiatives or in the development of new technologies. Here, Mark Matunga, Education Manager for Microsoft East & Southern Africa (ESA) speaks about the significant progress that has been made in Africa, persisting barriers and misconceptions, as well as his expectations for the upcoming eLearning Africa conference in Tanzania. eLA: What are some of the most significant developments you have seen in eLearning and ICT in the last few years, and what trends do you think will impact education in the next few years? Mark Matunga: There has been a shift in the way the world at large sees Africa when it comes to development and the realisation that for real change to occur, it needs to be completely sustainable. Mark Matunga: We are applying our innovation expertise and our partnerships through a number of on-going eLearning and ICT development initiatives across Africa. Mark Matunga: Many of the misconceptions that existed in the past have been overturned in recent years but there is still a prevailing perception that Africa's problems would be solved by merely taking products and solutions developed for the Western world and trying to fit them into the African context. Mark Matunga: I am really looking forward to collaborating with all the different stakeholders from around the Continent, sharing perspectives and learning from their stories, ideas and experiences.
