Topics/Call fo Papers

This 6th edition of the conference aims to create a stronger opening on educational issues in Africa as the goal is to revitalize the academic discussion with a new format in order to make the academic and research discourse more relevant for practice. The organisers therefore hope to widen the base of relevant case studies, and at the same time, strengthen the reflection regarding these practice-based cases.
GKEN therefore welcomes participation from researchers and practitioners from the many disciplines and perspectives bearing on the interaction between community and technology in both natural and social sciences including education, health, engineering, information technology among others.
