Beyond the KEKELITHEQUE tool, our association wants to promote another way of teaching and learning while promoting local content “said Kwéla-Sansi BINDIKA, the International Development Manager of the association committed to educational use information and communication technologies. “KEKELITHEQUE gives schools greater accessibility to educational resources, time savings and preservation of documents,” she continued.
“The week of mobile learning has strengthened us in the idea that our virtual library project is adapted to the context of education in Africa and particularly in Togo. It has also allowed us to better understand the issues related to digital development, including the protection of users’ personal data, “insisted Florentin AKIBODE, Head of Legal and Digital Affairs.
