Lagos plans technology usage for quality education

The Lagos State Government said it will employ a technology-driven template to drive its education sector. The Chairman of the Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, Wahab Alawiye-King, who stated this at an interactive session with head teachers of public primary schools in the state, noted that the technology-driven template would assist the board to achieve its vision of providing quality education for all the children within the school-age in the state. Alawiye-King stressed the need for teachers to be technologically-compliant to address some pertinent issues around education sector and improve its dwindling status in the state. He said, “We are preparing our teachers for the 22nd-century economy being championed by the present administration in the state. The performances of teachers would now be monitored with the aid of technology. We can know what teachers are doing with the new technology that is coming up and it will come very soon. “We are here to work for the progress of Lagos education because we see you as critical and relevant stakeholders and we think it is germane to seek your cooperation and support.” He further urged the head teachers to uphold the mantra of “leave no child behind” of the board to ensure that children are in school.
