- How can a strategy for “TVET for all” and “TVET for communities” be elaborated and implemented?

These are some of the themes that were examined at the 1st African UNESCO-UNEVOC TVET Summit “Access to and Inclusion in TVET in Africa Through New ICT-based Solutions”. This special event within the Pan-African annual eLearning Africa conference was held on 28 May 2007 in Nairobi. The Summit brought together more than 150 TVET experts, policy makers, researchers and practitioners from Africa and around the world to share experiences, discuss strategies and implement mechanisms for the promotion and sustainability of ICTs in TVET. In addition to the keynote addresses, the case studies illustrated the use of ICTs in TVET institutions in Kenya, Malawi and Zambia as well as a mobile learning project in South Africa and media education as TVET for Sub-Saharan Africa. During the afternoon workshops, the participants discussed issues around online community building in TVET and the effective use of e-learning respectively.
