The hole in the picture below is an important step towards technology installation at a school in Grabouw, South Africa. It was dug to erect a pole that will carry electricity to the school.
The importance of infrastructure preparation as a first step towards technology implementation in schools in Africa is often under-stated or outright ignored.
While talking about e-learning and Web 2.0 and social networks and the classroom of the future, and debating the merits and demerits of specific operating and application software products, don’t forget that there are more mundane things that can make or break your project … such as digging a hole for the electricity pole!
