Samsung Electronics Africa have adopted an attitude of innovation aiming at making sure that every African child has access to education no matter where they are – be it in a rural area lacking infrastructure or perhaps in an existing infrastructure but lacks educational resources – by providing access to technology.
Samsung sees education as the seed of innovation and believe digital technology can completely transform the learning process, as well as the nature of teaching and learning, to create inclusive environments for everyone.
The Solar Powered Internet Schools, Smart Schools, and E-Learning Centres provide solutions that deliver on this vision, and improve the quality of learning, enhance teaching effectiveness and allow administrators to run institutions more effectively. They work with educators around the world to improve learning experiences using technology, facilitating a classroom environment that gives students access to a world of knowledge. The Samsung Electronics Engineering Academy provides extensive, hands-on training to learners in the technical field. The programme forms a core part of Samsung’s vision to fast-track the entry of African youths into the electronics job market and to reduce the shortage of scarce skills in the IT industry.
