Ex­perts Urge Teach­ers To Em­brace Dig­i­tal Tech­nol­ogy

The Guardian (Nigeria) - - NEWS - By Kemi Sokoya

DIG­I­TAL ex­perts have stressed the need for teach­ers to make use of so­cial me­dia plat­forms such as pod­casts; Youtube and Google drive to make ed­u­ca­tion more cre­ative, in­no­va­tive and to pro­mote sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment goals.

The Ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of one African child foun­da­tion, Vic­to­ria Ibioye, who gave this ad­vice at the on­go­ing La­gos startup week (LSW), with the theme, “New­me­di­aasatool­for so­cialde­vel­op­ment,’’ said this could pro­mote ed­u­ca­tion in the coun­try.

She at­trib­uted that tech­nol­ogy is a game changer and a lot of things can be learnt through tech­nol­ogy, stress­ing that there are di­verse ways we can make ed­u­ca­tion more in­ter­est­ing. She urged en­trepreneurs to be­lieve in their selves, re­search, in­vest by putting their best in all they do, take risks, lis­ten to feed­back from peo­ple, have men­tors to share ideas, and de­liver stan­dard.

The Lead Con­sul­tant for Au­dac­ity to lead, Dayo Sa­muel called on the gov­ern­ment to make it manda­tory that ev­ery univer­sity must have an e-com­merce web­site plat­form where stu­dents can ac­cess ma­te­ri­als for lec­tures and other things.
