A global technology in education conference is underway in Cape Town and organisers want more teachers to have access to new technology. “The history of South Africa has created a lack of access in education, and particularly, low quality of education,” organiser Nancy Knowlton of Smart Technologies told News24.  She said the conference was organised in SA because individual countries had regional differences and “people further down the adoption line” could show how technology had impacted in classrooms in other parts of the world. “Before you can implement technology in classrooms, you need basic pre-conditions and a level of infrastructure to facilitate it,” she said. “There are people in Mexico who use our smart boards under a tree. They store it in a shed and use it with a generator during the day.”
