Edtech & The 4th Industrial Revolution In Africa will take a deep dive into the role EDTech companies, solutions and content will play in spurring African education and capacity building, thus re-positioning Africa.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution builds on the Digital Revolution, representing new ways in which technology becomes embedded within societies and even the human body.

In order to ensure that we are ready for the jobs of the future which will surely come with the 4th Industrial Revolution, we need to make sure that our educational system is transformed completely.
