The programme included topical EduTech concerns that South African schools and teachers are currently grappling with, including:
Nurturing Curiosity & Creativity in Learning through AI

Using Blended Learning Techniques in the Classroom, and
Teaching Reading to the Digital Generation
We were also joined by Nkisane Hlapolosa, Strategic Partner from MTN, a company that has helped us to increase our reach to new audiences via a mobile subscription service.
Showcasing our digital developments
Teachers were shown a demo of Oxford Reading Buddy and had the chance to explore Oxford EduZone Complete — an all-in-one learning and teaching solution providing all the content learners need. Our partners at Resolute Education, also showcased their joint Coding and Robotics offering, which launched in August 2023.
Our attendees walked away with a virtual goodie bag that linked to more information on the products on display, and a goodie bag filled with more product information, a beautiful wellness journal and a travel mug.
