IT News Nigeria

Skool Media Nigeria Limited has called on all education stakeholders in the country to join forces in empowering teachers in order to advance teaching profession in Nigeria, according to a statement today.

It added that this clarion call is germane as teachers all over the world celebrate “World Teachers Day”. World Teachers Day is celebrated on October 5 annually.

What did Skool Media say?

It is necessary to celebrate our teachers this day being the agents of change for the next generation. However, all stakeholders must come together to team up with the government to build a teaching industry that we will all be proud of; and Skool Media will continue to play a noble role in this regard.

Skool Media appreciates the Federal Ministry of Education for its recent approval of the Teachers Digital Literacy Programme (TDLP) which is targeted towards equipping teachers with adequate digital skills to develop instructional contents that will make learning more interesting to students.

With the approval of TDLP, Skool Media has commenced training of teachers in the Federal Unity Colleges (FUC) in phases across the six geopolitical zones in Information Communication Technology (ICT) as it affects educational management. This is being done to support teachers to become tech savvy and ICT compliant so that they can have a wider exposure into inspiring and teaching globally competitive learners.

The Chief Executive Officer of Skool Media, Mr. Moses Imayi said, it is necessary for teachers to leverage the potential of multimedia and online resources to motivate their students to learn better; and to effectively enhance the delivery of instructional content to improve teaching-learning outcomes.

Skool Media believes that there is need for school curricular to be fully galvanized to prepare Nigerian students for the 21st century workplace demand for hands-on Information Communication and Technology (ICT) applications and diverse vocational and technical skills. The Nigerian child must be prepared to take up the challenges of modern workplace by developing relevant technology skills capable of making them equal in tasks to their colleagues in the developed countries. This cannot be achieved without building teachers who are digitally skilled for the task.
