Oxford University Press recently held four digital launch events to engage schools with our digital product offerings

The aim of the event programme was to engage with educators and government officials, and to showcase our developments in digital.

Over 400 teachers, principals, ICT specialists and government officials attended these events that were held in the 4 key provinces:

  • Johannesburg, Gauteng,
  • Gqeberha, Eastern Cape,
  • Durban, KwaZulu Natal and;
  • Cape Town, Western Cape

The programme included topical EduTech concerns that South African schools and teachers are currently grappling with, including:

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.
