As part of Governor Abiodun Oyebanji’s commitment to Human Capital Development, three hundred and fifty secondary school teachers in Ekiti State have completed a two-week digital literacy training facilitated by the Ministry of Education through the World Bank-assisted AGILE project.

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the training, Dr. Kofoworola Aderiye, the Commissioner for Education, emphasized that the initiative was designed to empower teachers to make a lasting impact on their students, aligning with the broader vision of enhancing education in Ekiti State.

Represented by the Project Coordinator of the Adolescent Girls’ Initiative for Learning and Empowerment (AGILE), mrs Yewande Adesua, the Commissioner urged teachers to justify the government’s confidence in them by effectively applying the knowledge gained during the training in their classrooms.

She further encouraged them to organize mentorship programs for colleagues who are not ICT teachers, fostering a collaborative environment to achieve effective e-teaching in schools.

Aderiye added that beyond the training program, the government has provided essential digital devices, including laptops, smart boards, printers, photocopiers, and solar power energy solutions. She noted that these tools are aimed at enhancing the digital learning experience in schools.

“Digital technology education empowers students by providing them with skills needed to thrive in an ever-changing digital world. Advances in technology have changed the way people interact and work, including teaching and learning. Ekiti cannot be left behind. We must transition from the traditional mode of learning to e-teaching and e-learning using various technologies.”
