Science & Education
How do digital technologies change the way we learn, teach, research and share knowledge? How are scientific fields and research topics evolving? In this category, we would like to hear from education professionals, scientists, researchers, academics and students - from established institutions to citizen science initiatives. In particular, we’re looking forward to sessions presenting current research findings, reflections on educational and scientific methodologies, as well as technology reviews. We are interested in open science, open research, open labs, and open publishing, experiences in using digital devices in educational contexts, as well as biotech, nanotechnology and astrophysics.
- Science & Education-We believe that games - and the spirit of play in general – have a role in education and the pursuit of technological advancement in emerging nations. We've discovered during campus demonstrations of work-in-progress games by our Computer Science students that visitors - young and old alike - give us great feedback, learn some of the techniques and have fun at the same time. This session of "Game-ocracy" promises participation, insight, learning and fun.
- Science & Education-This session will address the importance of local languages and knowledge sharing in science and ultimately for sustainable economic development in Africa.
- Science & Education-Ghana has records of various security breaches since 2005, most organizations keep things in the hush to avoid embarrassing front page stories, while some do the bare minimum for compliance. This means there are still a plethora of businesses which can suffer financial and reputation damages in the wild. This talk would be an overview of resources that could be utilized by stakeholders to ensure they are part of cybersecurity movement which is picking up it's paces in Ghana.
