The Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) has commenced a 10-day digital literacy training programme facilitated by Microsoft in partnership with ATB Technosoft Solutions for over 12,000 Primary School Teachers across the state.
The Chairman of LASUBEB, Mr. Wahab Alawiye-King disclosed this on Tuesday when he addressed participants at the commencement of the digital training held virtually.
He said that the training is an extension of the remote learning scheme put in place to ensure that whilst school pupils are learning at home, the teachers should also prepare themselves for increased efficiency through career capacity training.
While emphasising the importance of technology to learning, the LASUBEB chairman stated that its relevance has become more pronounced with the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic which has changed the ways of doing things globally.
He noted that there are private actors willing to work hand-in-hand with the government to achieve quality and aIl-inclusive basic education in Lagos state.
Describing teachers as life-long learners, Alawiye-King urged the beneficiaries of the training to continue to learn, unlearn and relearn in line with emerging trends to engender positive outcomes.Follow us on social media
