The need for teachers to disseminate information in schools in Nigeria isn’t to be ignored. A report from UNESCO, a body under the UNO pointed it out that 17 million teachers were needed in Sub-Saharan Africa in order to achieve the 2030 International Education Goal set for the region.
The reason why Nigeria needs more teachers is because she is the most populous country in the region. This issue has to be addressed properly. When we think about the need for more teachers to disseminate information is something that should be taken with seriousnesss.
This is where CcHub comes in with a solution of theirs; the EdTech practice- re:learn. Now, re:learn is addressing the issue through Educator’s Network.
We’re addressing this through the Educators’ Network — a new wave of Educators capable of leveraging technology to educate the next generation,” stated re:learn.
re:learn is an Edtech practice from CcHub. re:learn is an open living lab focused on helping schools use technology in a smart ways to enhance the learning experience. CcHub is a social innovation centre dedicated to speeding up the application of social and capital technology for economic flourishing.
re:learn will employ the services of young graduates who have a hold in technology and has love for education. These recent graduates will then be geared up to become STEM educators full time.
Afterwards, they’ll be posted to several schools across the nation to impact knowledge. This won’t be a voluntary service because they’ll be paid good salaries, the teaching schedule won’t be tight and there’ll be time for constant personal training.
“At re:learn, our focus is on helping students and schools use technology in smart ways to enhance learning. Ultimately, our goal is to improve the quality of, and access to, education in Nigeria,” re:learn added.
Interested persons should note that the age bracket is between ages of 21-35 years. Catchment areas include Lagos, Kano, Jigawa and Abuja. Applications to join the re:learn’s Educators’ Network.
Well, I sincerely hope the areas where there’s little or no literacy will be lucky enough to have these teachers deployed there. Also, we can see from this new development that Nigeria is beginning to better the synergy of technology and education.
