Objectives

 Strategic goal of the African Ministerial Forum on ICT in education and training:
The African Development Bank, UNESCO, OIF, Intel, and ADEA, partnering together, are committed to create a regional policy dialogue mechanism to assist member states to harness potentials of ICT to achieve the goal of quality education for all. As the launch activity of this regional policy dialogue mechanism, the first Ministerial Forum will be held on December 9, 10 and 11 in Tunis. The forum will bring together policymakers, experts, development partners and representatives of ICT private sector and civil society. The organization of this ministerial forum will therefore provide a platform for regional high-level policy dialogue and knowledge sharing on how to harness the potentials of ICT integration in:
•    providing universal access to quality education and developmental opportunities to All Africans.
•    equipping learners with skills that empower them to become full actors of knowledge society.
•    promoting through the educational system a culture of digital literacy and creativity which are necessary for Africa to build innovation capacity for the IT industry.
The forum is also expected to provide a setting to incubate projects that can potentially be supported by the key partners of the event, or to roll out successful solutions or project models to other relevant countries.
