The African Education Knowledge Warehouse AEKW

AEKW is a pan-African education portal which services African School Net practitioners, policymakers and school-based communities on ICTs in education across Africa.

The Schoolnet Centre: SchoolNet Africa is dedicated to providing schoolnet practitioners in Africa with value-added information and a range of resources in support to the use of ICTs in Education initiatives at local level. We have developed this African SchoolNet Centre to provide information and resources for African schoolnet practitioners to enhance the implementation efforts. The African SchoolNet Centre collects and houses information on national schoolnets in Africa and globally and provides space for networking and collaboration among schoolnet practitioners. By working together, we can collectively consolidate our efforts, harness the knowledge and skills at our disposal and celebrate our victories. For more information, email us.

Our Organisation: SchoolNet Africa is one of Africa’s first African-led, African-based non-government organisations (NGO) that operates across the continent in its endeavour to improve education access, quality and efficiency through the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in African schools. SchoolNet Africa works mainly with learners, teachers, policymakers and practitioners through country-based schoolnet organisations across Africa. SchoolNet Africa is headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa where it employs staff from different African countries to manage its programs.
