Abstract

The research involves investigating, from an African, specifically Nigerian perspective, what exactly might constitute education technology design best practices that will bring about developing a knowledgeable individual? Substantive progress has been made with regards to identifying gaps in the literature regarding the notion of education with technology in Africa, notably blended learning and some work on the relevance of indigenous knowledge and methodologies in providing some better understanding of the peculiarities of an African context. Initial fieldwork has been completed in Nigeria, thematically analyzed and interpreted the data; conducting a follow-up field work (a participatory observational study), and also evaluating and disseminating the early results from the initial analysis.
