NEED TO INTRODUCE DIGITAL MARKETING AWARDS TO SPUR GROWTH IN KENYAS’ DIGITAL SPACE

Over the last few years, the social media revolution has completely redefined marketing.

The rising prominence of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and others has led to a more complex array of media choices, but has also rebooted our traditional view of marketing. This is no longer a one-way conversation with consumers. It is a real-time dialogue in which brands can be upended by an ill-conceived tweet or a rogue YouTube posting.

In such an environment, we think marketers deserve kudos for making the right calls and applying creative solutions. That’s why we’ve need to create an award scheme, which are designed to recognize the very best marketing in social media. The kenyan marketing scene needs to highlight thought leadership in such categories as Best Real-Time Marketing, Best Use of Twitter, Best Branded Vine and Best Use of Facebook, among others.

KENYAN EDUCATION COMPUTER SPACE INTERGRATES CORPORATES IN EUCATION AUTOMATION:DESKTOP VIRTUALIZATION AUTOMATION OPTION

Several school districts in the US that bought take-home laptops for whole classes or schools couldn’t afford it long-term. Some schools are looking to cheaper desktop virtualization solutions  instead (Desktop visualization–Desktop computers are shared among several users through deployment of  software on the desktop that would be shared with several users connected to shared computing devices e.g LG Network Monitor,N-computing devices).

A computer for every student: It’s a dream of many K-12 school leaders, who predict that students will soon use personal laptops or similar devices in class every day.

But who will pay for them?

Fighting to stay relevant in an increasingly tech-savvy society, some metro-area school districts have spent big bucks to buy take-home laptops for students in entire classes — even entire schools.

Fighting to stay relevant in an increasingly tech-savvy society, some schools assisted by governments have spent big bucks to buy take-home laptops for students in entire classes — even entire schools.

A computer for every student: It’s a dream of many  school leaders, who predict that students will soon use personal laptops or similar devices in class every day.

But who will pay for them?

But several have run into the same problem: They can’t afford to keep buying and maintaining all those Laptops.

Instead, tech savvy governments and others are taking a variety of steps to increase technology access: Deploying LGs Client Monitor or other desktop virtualisation solutions that stay on campus. Opening up school wireless networks so students can get online with their own Internet devices. Working with LG vendors to give families discounts on computers.

One thing tech gurus tend to agree on: Someday soon, personal Internet devices of some kind will be standard-issue in classrooms but on entry level for education Laptops are not a consensus.
