Technology and innovation have revolutionized the nature of teaching and learning on a global scale. While access to resources continues to be a challenge for many across the African continent, entrepreneurs are finding new and innovative ways to improve the quality of education and keep it on track with global skills learning standards. We’re excited to be joined by University of Johannesburg lecturer and the Founder of The Little Ashford Preschools, Jena Mukina as we discuss how technology is altering the future of education in Africa!
Jena Mukina is a keen observer of learning environments with a vested interest in the methods, practice and impact of teaching in early childhood. Through innovation and the transformation of the learning environment, Jena has been at the helm of the introduction of cutting edge technology in the classroom not only within the early childhood development sector but also in her role as a full-time lecturer at the University of Johannesburg.
She currently runs fifteen operational preschools together with her team of over 200 employees, servicing over 1000 children with a conviction to invest in continued skills development and training.
For her enthusiastic contribution to the learning environment and her passion for education, Jena was awarded the Best Lecturer Award in the Faculty of Management Sciences by the University of Johannesburg in 2010. In 2015, she was selected as an Investec Young Global Entrepreneur and then went on to be featured in leading publications such as Forbes and Destiny Magazine. In 2017, she was nominated in the All Africa Business Leaders Awards in partnership with CNBC Africa.
Jena is currently pursuing a Doctorate in Education with the goal of influencing policy changes and leveraging lobbyist actions for the significant improvement of education on the African continent. Join us for this invigorating talk with the multifaceted Jena Mukina as we discover how technology and innovation can be leveraged to enhance the quality of learning and education on the African continent.
