Technovation can save Zimbabwe's educational sector. #e-books #e-learning #education

The digital age can help us eliminate shortcomings within our education system if we are innovative enough.

E-books can help reduce the child to book, CB ratio as kids access and download books and other research material. EcoCash can be used as a payment system in buying e-books which are then sent to the user in a format compatible with the user's device.

E-learning will allow the teachers and tutors to reach students in their homes and help with homework, assignments and extra lessons. Holiday lessons and vacation school can eventually be eliminated altogether.

Audio-Visual aids like live radio or television and recorded material will help reduce the gap between advanced and advancing schools. Such tutorials help the teacher to come up with new ideas.

Technovation is key for African education.

#hifa is done. What's next?

Just like the Mardi Gras in the US, the Harare International Festival of the Arts, HIFA is a major event on Zimbabwe's calendar.
HIFA's significance is more pronounced by the fact that the premium event marks the end of a festive summer and the beginning of a rather solemn winter.
This year is different however, as the next major event could either be the decisive watershed and potentially bloody elections or the UNWTO summit all of which put our ever bickering political leaders back into the limelight.
The life after HIFA is uncertain this year and the event marked the end of a carefree, celebratory, artistic life as Zimbabweans transform into either fanatical political activists or hysterical human rights campaigners.

Life after HIFA is a uncertain and all we can say is "What's next?"
