Green Circle Network Africa and Hitachi Software is collaborating with Nigerian universities, polytechnics and post primary schools on interactive learning solutions. The 'Hitachi-Green Circle for Excellence' programme aims to provide and support forums to share best practices and benchmark new solutions in teaching and learning in Nigeria and other parts of Africa, the major objective being of bridging the knowledge gap between the developed and developing nations. The Managing Director and Chief executive Officer of Green Circle Network Africa, Josh Ladipo Oke , mentioned that the main emphasis in the education system should be on how students are taught and what they learn.
He added that the schools that have included interactive learning include University of Ibadan, Adekunke Ajasin University, University of Technology Minna, University of Nigeria Nsukka, Federal Polytechnic Ibadan, Adamawa State University, National Open University, Premiere Academy and Life Forte School, Ibadan. The initiative, according to him, is to stimulate the appetite to learn and inspire students. Also with the interactive learning solutions and interactive classrooms, students would be able to access resources in over 1000 Hitachi partner institutions across the world.
