To ensure ICT integration in education, teachers need to be involved; facilitating access to information has to start with the teaching staff. it is crucial to increase teachers’ awareness about the place that ICT can have in education and the benefits they can provide to their students.In this way, Afritek and its partners, have decided to support African teachers by developing IT solutions to meet their specific needs, and by providing them with computers. Several projects are currently under development in that specific area. Teachers are the ones in direct daily contact with students and therefore need to be able to promote an efficient use of ICT in schools. Teachers also play a critical role in encouraging students to be more interested and engaged in ICT and alternative methods of learning.
