In Africa's schools, old-fashioned, dusty textbooks are gradually being
replaced by tablets, computers and mobile phones.
​ ​
*Such digital technologies offer the potential to tackle some of the
continent's chronic education challenges, including overcrowded classrooms,
teacher shortages and the 30 million children in sub-Saharan Africa without

such company is Via Afrika Publishers.
