CAPE TOWN, 22 May 2018 – Always eager to share knowledge and participate in strategic conversations around education and innovation, Snapplify will be attending the Education Innovation Summit, as well as EduWeek, in Johannesburg over the next month.

The Education Innovation Summit, taking place on the 31st of May at the Hilton Sandton Hotel, is hosted by IT News Africa. The event aims to advance innovation in education by providing a forum for academics and industry leaders to discuss and explore technology opportunities and challenges.

On the 31st of May, Snapplify CEO, Wesley Lynch, will participate in a panel discussion on the roadblocks to innovation, and give a keynote presentation titled ‘Innovation in Education: What Works, What Doesn’t, and What to Do About it?’ Snapplify’s Account Manager, Shaun Marshall, will also run a workshop titled ‘Overcoming Barriers to tech Adoption in Education’, where practical digital learning adoption techniques will be explored.


This year’s EduWeek event takes place at Johannesburg’s Ticketpro Dome, on the 15th and 16th of June. Now in its 12th year, EduWeek has become one of the top annual meet-ups for educational professionals across Africa, bringing together 5500 education buyers, influencers and experts. Snapplify’s full education team, representing the company’s nationwide presence, will be in attendance.

‘The Snapplify team has worked hard for our reputation as an innovator in the edtech space in Africa, and we’re excited to join other industry leaders aiming to improve education across the continent using unique solutions. Snapplify’s wide range of digital tools have benefited hundreds of African schools, and we are continually looking for new ways to develop, adapt, collaborate, and learn,’ said Wesley Lynch, Snapplify’s CEO.
