Millennial Talk: Tools and Resources to Foster EdTech for Millennials
Nigeria's budgetary allocation to education in 2020 was 6.7% and is usually within a yearly percentage that is well below the estimated allocation for Education by the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization UNESCO (27%).
Education is the bedrock of development in any country, which is why Nigeria need to leverage on tech tools and technology to further improve education in the nation. A Cambridge International online survey of nearly 20,000 teachers and students (ages 12 - 19) from 100 countries, showed that the use of technology in schools worldwide continues to grow, with 48 percent of students reporting they use a desktop computer in the classroom.
Forty-two percent use smartphones, 33 percent use interactive whiteboards and 20 percent use tablets. Yet the numbers remain high for more traditional modes as well, such as pen and paper (90 percent) and whiteboards (73 percent).
Educational technology is essential in school management to achieve efficiency and effectiveness. The world has evolved from more traditional methods of learning to digital patterns and every school administrator or educator is advised to adapt to such digital methodologies to be more productive.
This will foster accuracy, accountability, development, and the achievement of school goals.
