Abstract
This work presents the philosophical in-depth of Annang values education and its implication for the creation of a new technological Africa. Thus, the problem of how Annang values education can develop and activate mental prowess for creativity, sustainable development and provide standard values for future African civilization, becomes imperative in this era of perplexed identity. Various attempts at technological development in traditional Africa have been based on the notion of technological transfer, which is inimical to the traditional African growth and development. Indeed, to foster a new technological development for Africa through Annang values education, the work utilizes primary sources while deploying Egbeke Aja’s notion of a philosophy of education with these basic elements: New Naturalism, New Holism, and New Immanentism; that would aid in creating a new technological Africa. The work found out that, for Africa to control their technology, it must sieve out those traditional African authentic values in the present harmonious civilization and be more concern with the value based curriculum that imbued the metaphysics of the people it meant to serve. As this will help in discovering techniques and constructing guidelines on how to deal with the problems created for Africa by the existential evolution.
