FG To Introduce Digital Learning In Schools

The Federal Ministry of Education has expressed its preparation to implement a digital learning strategy in Federal Government (FG) colleges and other privately owned secondary educational institutions around the country.

The ministry added that digital classrooms, digital teachers, and digital pupils were necessary for Nigeria to become a technologically literate nation.

This was disclosed by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Didi Walson-Jack, during a presentation on how to operate the digital board in a smart learning space donated by the Unity Schools Old Students Association, on Friday, in Abuja.

Walson-Jack, in a statement on Saturday, expressed delight over the initiative noting that the initiative would serve as the beginning of a revolution.

He stated, “So we’re very excited and we look forward to working with WOWBii to see how we can escalate this to our schools and our colleges of education for the teachers to learn this way of interaction digitally with its students.

“It therefore means that for Nigeria to be digital, we need to have digital classrooms, digital teachers, and of course digital students. And this WOWBii board will mark the beginning of interaction between students, and the teachers in a way that has never been before in Nigerian public schools.”

Speaking earlier, the President of General Unity Schools Old Students Association, Michael Magaji, who introduced the initiative to the ministry, noted that the education sector is moving on rapidly, especially with great thinkers like the association group having passed through the remarkable centre of learning.
