The Summit Experience
Enjoy two days of empowering hands-on breakout sessions, inspiring keynote speakers, and fun activities including a high-energy demo slam.
Choose from compelling sessions about all the Apps in the G Suite for Education (Drive, Docs, Slides, Sheets, Drawings, YouTube, Classroom, Maps and more) as well as sessions that go beyond the tools by highlighting cutting edge best practices in educational technology and great teaching!
Connect with world-class presentations by our passionate and FUN Spotlight and General speakers – most of whom are Google for Education Certified Educators, Trainers, or Innovators as well as Apple Teachers or Apple Distinguished Educators. They’ll share their passion and expertise on topics like Project Based Learning (PBL), digital literacy, STEM, maths, digital citizenship, assistive technology and more! Best of all, you’ll add each of these speakers, as well as the other attendees, to your Personal Learning Network and connect with them throughout and after the Summit.

What have attendees said about their experience at previous Summits in South Africa?
“You get out of your comfort zone and do things you would not have considered before!”
“The highlight for me was seeing other South African educators so willing to learn in order to change the way they teach and inspire the students that they teach.”
“Great speakers. Fabulous having local people present too as it builds confidence in local teachers.”
“The EdTechTeam Summit is an inspirational event that will leave you feeling energised and motivated to make a change.”
“The Summit made me want to go back to school as a pupil so that I can be part of this Googlemania! I am an ex-educator and so jealous of all the exciting ‘stuff’ that my ex-colleagues have access to.”
