Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, yesterday, said that learning would be digitised at primary and junior schools in the state to make learning attractive.
More than 2,000 teachers from all the 57 local councils are currently undergoing a two-week intensive training currently held by the state government’s Eko Excel Initiative.
The programme is a key component of Sanwo-Olu administration’s education blueprint which seeks to deploy technology to fundamentally transform the basic education template, thereby improving the outcome of teaching and learning.
The State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) and its technical partner, Bridge International Academies, had already trained 2,400 primary school teachers in the first tranche of the capacity building programme.
Sanwo-Olu stated this when he made a surprise visit to CMS school’s complex in Bariga for an assessment of the ongoing capacity-building programme for all public primary school teachers across the state.
He said the training was necessary to incorporate the primary school teachers into the reforms being introduced to improve on education at the foundation level and enhance the quality of education in the state.
The governor said his government had concluded plans to digitise the curriculum of basic schools, noting that modern techniques were being employed to maximise learning in all public-owned primary schools.
