An Information and Communication Technology analyst, Mr Chris Opetiyan, has urged stakeholders in the education sector to embrace the use of technology, which he described as capable of improving learning outcomes and classroom experience.

Speaking at the unveiling of an e-learning software, Educare, Opetiyan said technology advancements could potentially provide innovative solutions in the education sector if fully embraced and effectively utilised.

He said, “It is no news that education in Nigeria is in dire need of an academic curriculum revamp, infrastructural upgrade and increased funding. In addition to these are several other challenges, including lack of teacher innovation, lack of involvement from parents, overcrowded classrooms, among others, which if addressed, would help to reduce poverty, boost economic growth and increase income.

“Just as in very other sector, technology can provide innovative solutions if fully embraced. One of such technological innovations that is essential for operating schools effectively and revolutionising classrooms is the school management software. This software is designed to automate schools’ diverse operations from classes to examinations in the school events calendar. More important, these platforms improve and provide better insight into pupils’ performance and attendance.”

He added that the adoption of educational technology solutions, such as the educare platform, woud increase parental involvement, creative teaching by educators and overall better outcomes.

A school administrator, Mrs Elfrida Omole, who expressed her initial doubt and reservation on embracing technology, said, “In a world where technology has the power to transform and revolutionise industries, it is time for educators to adopt innovations to ensure that this generation of children are better educated in the context of this hyper-connected digital era.”
