Google Connected Classroom at Constitution Hill

After hosting Africa’s first ever Google+ Connected Classroom at MOAD, 21 Icons is proud to participate in a second event at Constitution Hill in central Johannesburg. The virtual field trip will explore how South Africa is building a strong future on a conflicted past. Lerato Sefume and Collen Baloyi, two historians at Constitution Hill, will share the history of this site and discuss what it means in our modern day democracy.

We’ll also see how South African icons such as George Bizos and Albie Sachs played a role in shaping our future.
