We are pleased to announce our next event starting 31 March which is focused on the effective use of mobile phones in learning. Christopher Pruijsen, CEO of Sterio.me will present on “mLearning via audio and GSM/feature phones”. He will lead a discussion about the design and use of this new mLearning product, which he developed together with two fellow entrepreneurs on a bus going from Harare to Cape Town. Come and join us with your questions and your insights concerning mLearning.
The online discussion and related resources will be available on our site at http://emergeafrica.net/live from the morning of 31 March. There will be a live meeting with Christopher Pruijsen on 2 April at 2 pm (GMT+2).
Please note a change in the programme.

The new date will be announced as soon as it is agreed with Batseba.
