    Hello everyone,

    My name is Tutaleni I. Asino, and I am excited to be leading the conversation for e/Merge Africa this week. I am a Namibian who is an Assistant professor of Educational Technology in the college of education at Oklahoma State University in the USA. I start out by saying that I am from Namibia because that has much to do with the conversation for this week, which is focused on examining and problematizing diffusion of innovation in Afrika.

    I have spent the last 16 years working with in higher education as a teacher, researcher, and administrator. My areas of research, writing, and presentations include: Mobile Learning, contextually appropriate learning technologies, Comparative International Education, indigenous knowledge, and the role of culture in the development and evaluation of learning technologies. I am an active member of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) where we celebrated and formalized our partnership with e/Merge Africa at the conference that concluded last month in Las Vegas. I am also active in the Comparative International Education Society (CIES) where I chair the indigenous knowledge and the academy special interests group.

    I am passionate about learning and teaching with technology, and contributions of Afrikan scholars and scholarship to the global academic discourse. I am looking forward to leaning from everyone this week as we discuss the adoption and diffusion of technology in Afrikan countries.
