My name is Kobus van Wyk and I live in Cape Town, South Africa. I’ve been in the computer industry for thirty years, the past twelve years of which were spent in the education sector - this gave me insight into the challenges of bringing technology to schools.
e4africa is my personal blog, hosted on my website. It contains my private views and reflects my own opinions on ICT in education matters. Please note: the views expressed in this blog are my own and in no way reflect those of any of my associates – individuals or organizations.
The material published in this blog may not always reflect popular opinion, but if a divergent view is expressed, it is done in good faith. My purpose is not to be controversial but to present the true state of ICT in education to my readers.
I do not believe that I have all the answers (although I know some of the questions by now) and therefore invite comments from those who can make a contribution to the topics under discussion. I will only delete a comment if it is abusive, in bad taste, or overtly advertises a product that I cannot support.
It is my wish that e4africa would inspire others in the education fraternity – particularly teachers – to start using blogs as a way of sharing information. Blogging has the potential to blow new life into a sagging and failing education system.
