Microsoft to integrate ICT into African schools

Views: 395

Worried by the slow speed  of  Information Communications Technology (ICT) penetration  into African schools, the Software giant, Microsoft has  launched  its blueprint for implementing Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in African Schools.

The ICT blueprint for Schools, Vanguard Computers &e-Business gathered,  is expected to  address issues critical to developing countries including  the application of ICT to accelerate the fight against poverty and improve the delivery of education. The blueprint will focus on  the nine essential components- Leadership; Policy; Research; Access; Innovative Solutions; Curriculum; Teacher Training; Communities and Partners and Support. Before now, African students, especially,  Nigeria lag behind its Western counterparts in the applications of basic IT tools and knowledge. Unless IT education is integrated into African educational system, the quest for global competitiveness may not be achieved.
