With today’s explosion of technology, there is a rise in the need for digital learning resources for students in schools. While there are solutions available, there is the concern of contextualized solutions for Africa as well as those who can create these types of resources on the continent.
Co-Creation Hub (CcHUB) in partnership with ACT Foundation has stepped in to close this gap. CcHUB is happy to announce the first CcHUB EdTech Fellowship. The fellowship is focused on creating a pipeline of digital instructional designers capable of creating quality and relevant digital resources.
The fellowship will see 40 universities of education students who are passionate about technology come together for the next 7 months to participate in an intense but exciting fellowship.
During the fellowship, the fellows will pick a concept, create resources by working with teachers, CcHUB designers and software developers. By the end of the fellowship, the fellows will present their work to different EdTech stakeholders who will eventually absorb them into their EdTech companies.
- Interested applicants must be enrolled for a degree in the school of education and be in their 3rd or 4th year or must have graduated recently from the school of education.
- Interested applicants must possess a computer/laptop and must have at least basic computer skills.
