Ogun Moving to Boost ICT Teaching in Public School0
The present administration in Ogun State is determined to enhance the knowledge of students in its public secondary schools in Information and Communication Technology as well as its applications in everyday living.
To this end, it is making plans to provide more state-of-the-art computers and their accessories in all the schools across the State.
Commissioner for Education, Science and Technology, Barrister Segun Odubela dropped this hint in Abeokuta when he hosted the Board and Members of the State chapter of Computer Teachers Association of Nigeria (CTAN) during a courtesy visit.
He affirmed that the step would make the students ICT compliant and become active participants in the “global village” that the world is fast becoming.
“As you are aware, the trend all over now is computer and the world itself is turning into a global village. We cannot afford to be behind in this trend” Odubela stated.
He also assured that as a step in this direction, his Ministry would involve members of CTAN in relevant activities, particularly, the compilation of computer science examination for the unified examinations for secondary school students in the State.
“Everything possible will always be done to collaborate with you in all our activities that are computer-oriented” he pledged.
Speaking earlier, Chairman, Board of Trustees of CTAN in the State, Mr. Olusola Otesile, urged the State government to look into lopsided posting of computer teachers in its public secondary schools.
