Purpose

Discuss the development of the educational sector in Ethiopia, and the opportunities for connecting schools

Regarding the points of the meeting

a) Location of each school – we don’t have such a register either, I would suggest a concerted action involving the Government and GIGAconnect
b) University Network: We are currently involved with Aambo, Jimma, Bahir Dar, Ghondor and some other universities, planning a.o. a better suited curriculum towards digital transformation and job creation
c) Educational Network & educational curriculum: You are probably aware of the National Digital Library (NDL) in Ethiopia, which is the base for educational material. But from there to curricula in electronic form is a long way to go.

Suggestion to collaborate with the Nordic EdTech Forum and the Government of Estonia: As part of http:GovStack.Global, we are working on a specific EdTech microservice architecture to enable service & content creation in the regions.

Follow-up

Monday at 11:00h SA time.
