Views: 110

Nigeria's Federal Capital Territory Administration and the Intel e-learning are adapting a 10 million dollar-library digital content to the Nigerian secondary school curriculum to be made freely available to students and teachers on the internet.


Intel intends to train 10,000 teachers over the next 3 years under its World Ahead Programme. So far it has trained approximately 1,900 teachers and is working with local companies to deploy wireless internet access to the FCT schools and also developing technology-enabled learning programmes by deploying proof of concept pilot schools within the FCT. The project, the first in the world, will involve setting up of a model ICT-enabled school to provide connectivity, personalised laptops for children and digital curriculum- based content for secondary schools.
