“TechShare Africa is a great opportunity for us to introduce some of the new technologies we’ve been working on that have already made differences in the lives of students in the U.S. and elsewhere,” said Laura Matz, Perkins Products director of sales and marketing. “Most Forum participants haven’t used the latest technology. And when they do, they realize, ‘I can do anything if I have this.’ When people see what the capabilities are, it’s mind-boggling because it really removes many of the hurdles.” More information is provided on the Perkins website.
