ICT experts tasked to advance Africa's economic development agenda | SpyGhana.com | E-skills | Scoop.it

 

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) experts in Africa have been tasked to develop workable solutions to address the numerous challenges in the mobile communications sector to accelerate economic development.

 

Dr Osei Darkwa, President of the Ghana Technology University (GTUC), who made the statement during the Second GTUC Conference in Accra recently, asked the experts to explore opportunities in the mobile communications sector to speed up development.

 

The conference was on the theme: “Applications of Mobile Communications in Africa: Prospects and Challenges”.

 

A statement signed by Ms Afua Amankwa Sarkodie, Head of Public Relations of GTUC, and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Friday, quoted Dr Darkwa as saying; “Today, the mobile phone is used to send text messages, transfer money, promote health services and provide access to education”.

 

There was, therefore, the need for Africa to cooperate with Europe in research and development, deployment and operations, consultancies and education and to learn best practices, the statement said.

 

It said: “In a continent where people have more access to mobile phones than to clean water, it is important for academics and experts to find innovative ways of using the mobile phone to solve some of Africa’s problems”.

 

The statement said mobile communications had been advancing at a fast pace in Africa and increasingly used as a platform to address challenges in health, education and banking.

 

It said through innovative Public Sector Reforms in ICT, there had been enormous development and prospects in Sub-Sahara Africa, though, more needed to be done.

Now in its eighth year, eLearning Africa will be bringing together a wide range of perspectives on ICT for development, education and training in Windhoek, Namibia, from 29-31 May 2013. 

 

Africa is experiencing a technological surge and it is having a dramatic effect on education throughout the continent. Tech hubs are blossoming, new mobile devices and apps are being designed and produced in Africa, by Africans, and Africa's eLearning market is reportedly the fastest-growing in the world.

With self-paced eLearning revenues forecast to double to US$512.7m by 2016, it is clear that sales to Africa are experiencing a sharp upturn. However, Africa is not just an end user of new products: the engines driving this growth are also powering industry and innovation as well as supporting African businesses. And with fewer than 1 000 days left to the target date for the Millennium Development Goals, such African-born initiatives are also helping to accelerate the worldwide action against poverty.

With a record number of proposals submitted and more attendees expected than ever before, eLearning Africa 2013 is certainly feeling the effect of the technology boom.
