ODSG to scale up computer  education

By Bukola Olamona

In line with global best practices, the Ondo State Ministry of Education Science and Technology is putting machinery in motion to upgrade Computer Education Technology in public secondary schools in the state.

This development came to the fore when  the Chief Executive of Deep Blue Technologists,  Mr Gbenga Abejirin, visited the  Commissioner and the management staff of the ministry in Akure .

Abejirin disclosed that the scheme ” Raising  a generation of innovation and creators in Nigeria,  the smart classroom era” had been successfully pilot-tested in Abuja the Federal capital of Nigeria.

He said the world is experiencing a fourth industrial revolution and for the youths of school age to benefit, technology education is the foundation

Enumerating the benefits of smart classroom, Abejirin said  it promotes inclusion and engagement of participants as well as  prepare them for future endeavours.

While expressing satisfaction with the initiatives of Mr Gbenga Abejirin the Commissioner, Pastor Femi Agagu indicated the readiness of the  state  government to collaborate with Deep Blue Technologists to promote technology education in the state.

Agagu said some of the schools had enough facilities that would not only help the smooth take off of the  smart classroom technology but sustain the scheme.

Similarly,  the permanent secretary,  Rev Akin Asaniyan said the coding galaxy and the robotic engineering which were the nucleus of the curriculum would sustain learners interest and reduce the social vices that have bedevilled the education sector.

Asaniyan therefore directed the Director Science and Technology of the ministry to  inspect some schools to ascertain where  the pilot scheme could immediately take off..
