To enhance the quality of e-teaching and learning, a computer and tripod screen (projector) have been donated to Ondo State Radiovision Corporation (OSRC) by the State Ministry of Education, Science and Technology.
The Special Assistant to the Governor on Education, Dr Olawumi Ilawole while making the donation during a bi- monthly meeting of education stakeholders said the donation became necessary so that students could learn easily.
Ilawole who commended the teachers who were teaching on the television for their commitment and dedication, stated that for them to improve on their recordings and to deliver effectively, the ministry decided to provide the equipment.
On the issue of the students from the Southern Senatorial District of the state who could not get the signal of OSRC, she posited that the government is trying to boost the signal of the transmission to ensure the students are not lagging behind or cut off.
“Also, we are looking at how the lectures will be recorded and distributed to them at a token so that they can watch at home, no children should be left behind, everyone should be catered for” she said.
Also speaking, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Rev Akin Asaniyan who represented the Commissioner, Mr Femi Agagu has called on staffers of the ministry to be ready as examinations will be conducted immediately schools resume.
He said all hands must be on deck now as a lot of time has been wasted during the emergency holiday caused by COVID-19.
The Chairman, Parents Teacher Association, (PTA), Chief Abimbola Omoloja who thanked the Governor for the initiative, also suggested that a circular be sent to all schools when it resumes to make sure they all have the sanitation gadget to protect the students.
