INTRODUCTION TO THE eLEARNING INNOVATIONS CONFERENCE

Advancements in technology have not been limited to improving how processes or machines work; they are now taking centre stage of how we teach and learn. Mobile devices and internet connectivity continue to make the mundane interesting; current affairs at the swipe of a screen, groceries purchased at the click of a button, and so on. Most important, is the massive educational content available from search engines, and for all levels of education. The human resource makeup is equally diverse, featuring student innovators of educational apps, teacher driven content, as well as experienced educational programmers. Imagine the potential impact these technologies would have on educating our people, hence Changing Lives at all levels and stages in life.
 

Welcome to the 2015 eLearning Innovations Conference, an annual gathering of the best minds in education technology and innovation in Kenya and around the world. This event features cutting edge researchers, innovators, practitioners, teachers of all levels, and scholars, providing delegates fresh insights on latest trends, practical tools and collaborative space to share best practices in eLearning. The conference features excellent professional growth and business development opportunities.


This event is organized under the theme “Changing Lives”, and provides a variety of session formats; Pre-conference workshops, Keynote speakers, Thought Leaders Panel sessions, and Symposium sessions featuring diverse speakers from all sectors. Abstract submission is open every year to anyone with elearning/mobile learning content to share.
