Educational technology has the power to revolutionize education in developing countries by increasing access, quality, equity, and efficiency of education. Here are four more ways that edutech can revolutionize primary and secondary education systems in Nigeria:

  • EdTech can expand access to education for millions of children and youth who are out of school due to poverty, conflict, disability, or other barriers. For example, radio, TV, online platforms, and mobile devices can deliver educational content to remote or marginalized areas where schools are scarce or unsafe.
  • ICT4Edu can improve quality of education by providing teachers with new tools and resources to enhance their pedagogy and professional development. For example, digital libraries, interactive software, online courses, and peer networks can help teachers access relevant curriculum materials, update their knowledge and skills, and share best practices.
  • EdTech can promote equity of education by addressing the diverse needs and preferences of learners with different backgrounds, abilities, languages, or learning styles. For example, adaptive software, assistive devices, multilingual content, and gamified apps can help learners with special needs, low literacy levels, minority languages, or low motivation to engage in personalized learning experiences that suit their pace and interests.
  • ICT4Edu can enhance efficiency of education by reducing costs, saving time, and increasing productivity of educational systems. For example, cloud computing, data analytics, artificial intelligence, and blockchain can help educational managers and policymakers to streamline administrative processes, monitor performance indicators, optimize resource allocation, and ensure transparency and accountability.
