Role: Together with Rudolph Ampolfo, I am the EdTech Hub’s Country Lead for Ghana. We work with government and other stakeholders to build knowledge and experience across the national education system of the what, how and why of using EdTech to support Ghanaian children and young adults to access effective and meaningful learning opportunities.
Background: Before joining the EdTech Hub, I developed and implemented research-informed EdTech programming in Africa and the Middle East focused on increasing children’s literacy and numeracy. My work, whether in the not for profit and profit worlds, has almost always been about seeking to use technology, innovation and partnerships to build something useful. Very often challenging, always rewarding.
Fun fact: Gardens and gardening make me very happy. My very small and overflowing (read: slightly out of control) garden is testament to this.
