egk13 - Harnessing Innovation for Wider Educational Integration - Oforiwa MacCarthy

  1. 1. Harnessing  Innova-on  for  wider   Educa-onal  Integra-on   EGK13,  Addis  Ababa,  Ethiopia.     By:  Oforiwa  MacCarthy,  CEO  Africa  New  Media  
  2. 2. “I  am  an  educated  African,  out  of  Africa,  back  in   Africa”      
  3. 3. The  African  Diaspora  is  broadly  defined  by  the   African  Union  Commission  as  "peoples  of  African   origin  living  outside  the  con5nent,  irrespec5ve  of   their  ci5zenship  and  na5onality  and  who  are   willing  to  contribute  to  the  development  of  the   con5nent  and  the  building  of  the  African  Union.”     •  North  America:  39  million  from     •  La-n  America:  113  million     •  Caribbean:  13.6  million   •  Europe:  3.5  million  
  4. 4. African  Diaspora  posses  a  wealth  of  knowledge   and  innova-on  that  is  needed  to  push  Africa   forwards.      
  5. 5.   The  ques(on  is:       How  do  we  resonate  Africa  in  them,  to  inspire   them  to  return  home?  And  furthermore,  u-lize   their  ideas  in  educa-ng  Africa?  
  6. 6. The  answer  is  simple!        
  7. 7. Africa  needs  home  grown  talent  who   understands  applying  the  spirit  of  innova-on  in   educa-on.     Considering  how  technology  has  become  our   everyday  part  of  life,  it’s  about  -me  we   integrate  and  enforce  it  in  our  educa-onal   system.      
  8. 8. How  do  we  en-ce  the  Diaspora?  
  9. 9. “Marriage  can  wait,  Educa-on  cannot”  Khaled   Hosseini,  A  Thousand  Splendid  Suns   For  the  African  Con-nent  to  liX  itself  from   ‘developing’  to  ‘developed,  the  human   resources  and  workforce  needs  to  be  educated.     “Innova-on  dis-nguishes  between  a  leader  and   a  follower”  Steve  Jobs   For  our  educated  genera-on  to  be  leaders,  they   must  understand  and  harness  Innova-on  
  10. 10.   How  can  innova-on  be  harnessed  for  higher   educa-on?     Already,  Africans  are  u-lising  innova-ve   technologies  to  communicate  in  overcoming  the   rigid  boarders  on  the  Con-nent.     Provides  great  poten-al  in  duplica-ng  this   innova-on  to  educa-on  across  the  con-nent.    
  11. 11. •  Technology  provides  opportuni-es  to  enhance   learning  and  new  ways  of  engaging  and   communica-ng  with  learners.     •  The  'innova-on  impera-ve'  is  as  valid  for   higher  educa-on  as  for  other  areas  and  while   it  is  perhaps  s-ll  less  visible  in  the  higher   educa-on  sector  there  is  a  clear  benefit  of   addressing  its  poten-al  impact  for  growth,   inclusion  and  compe--veness.  
  12. 12. A  dismal  sta-s-c  states  that  only  5%  of  young   people  in  Africa  today  a]end  college.     These  are  the  5%,  by  defini-on  are  deemed  to   be  the  leaders  of  Africa  in  the  next  20  years  or   30  years.     Yet  these  5%  are  not  being  equipped  with   innova-on  in  Educa-on    
  13. 13. We  are  INNOVATIVE!
