"Since the mid-Nineties the use of Internet Communication Technology (ICT) has been making its way into South African classrooms. And yet, currently only 28% of public schools around the country use computers and other digital devices to enhance teaching and learning, according to the Department of Basic Education. The fact that South Africa ranks in 65th place out of 145 economies in overall ICT usage (according to the World Economic Forum’s 2015 Global Networked Readiness Report) indicates the current lack of impact in South Africa’s e-Education initiatives.
In this report South Africa was numbered among the sub-Saharan countries that have both an ICT policy on education and a plan in place to implement ICT into the education system. So why are we not seeing more impact in e-Learning in the South African education ecosystem in 2017?"
