In October 2019, I joined educators, students, policymakers and professionals from around the world, including twenty-one African countries, for the ScratchAfrica Global Conference. At the conference, I presented an ignite talk titled “Leveraging Creative Learning for the Emerging African Youth Generation”, hosted an “Introduction to Machine Learning” workshop for educators and also livetweeted talks and sessions.
The ignite talk I gave can be found here: Leveraging Creative Learning for the Emerging African Youth Generation. The talk included ideas from Jean Piaget, Mitchel Resnick and Kofi Annan.
The Introduction to Machine Learning Workshop I hosted was attended by various educators including some who were encountering Machine Learning for the first time.
