Topic: ICT in Schools: An add-in NOT an add-on
Kobus lives in Cape Town, South Africa.  He has been in the computer industry for thirty years, of which the past ten years were spent in the education sector as programme director of the Khanya project, which implemented ICT in 1400 schools and trained 27 000 teachers in the use of technology. This gave him insight into the challenges of bringing technology to schools, as well as the critical success factors leading to effective e-learning. Kobus has recently resigned from this position and will be joining a large computer manufacturing company to head up their e-learning division.  There his task will be to sell the concept of e-learning and the use of ICT in education to all the education departments of the different provinces in the country, focusing on the decision makers.
