Edo teachers to embed digital skills

As part of the ongoing reforms in its education sector, the Edo State, Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has approved the training of 5,000 school teachers on the use of digital technology in teaching.


Special Adviser to the governor on Basic Education and Acting Chairman of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB), Dr. Joan Osa Oviawe, said this at the weekend while speaking to journalists.

She said the training was a component of the Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation (Edo-BEST) initiative geared towards providing qualitative education for every child using correct and up-to-date pedagogy in schools.


Dr. Oviawe said, the “Edo-BEST programme will be expanded to over 60 per cent of public primary schools across the state and will cover kindergarten to primary six. Five thousand teachers drawn from select schools will be trained in three batches,” she added.

She assured that data gathering and planning for the phase 2 training had been properly executed, adding that the teachers are eager to participate and become digitally compliant.

She further disclosed that head teachers would receive training on school management, going forward, to instill a strong culture of maintenance in schools.
