An Education Technology Consult, WOWBii Interactive has certified RiverBank School, Victoria Island, as its first ‘BUDDZone’ in the country.

The organisation is the first manufacturer of interactive touchscreens in Africa. In addition to the ‘SmartBUDD’ suite, WOWBii has developed the ‘BUDDRoom’ suite, which offers Interactive tele-presence that is redefining presentation and collaboration options for businesses.

Chief Executive Officer of the organisation, Terae Onyeje, while presenting the certificate to the Head of School, Mrs. Regina Jemide, explained, “A BUDDZone is a learning area designed to enable educators use technological resources to drive interactive learning”.

Onyeje disclosed that the partnership allows WOWBii to deliver an ecosystem that truly reflects 21st Century learning, adding, “As the foremost proponent of interactive learning in Africa, we are looking forward to more options to drive EdTech across the continent.

He said, “We are on a mission to transform the way Africa works and learns, one interactive panel at a time. We are continually working with educators to create an interactive curriculum-aligned electronic content that will develop a new generation of learners who will play an active role in their learning”.

Founder, WOWBii Interactive, Mr. Gbolahan Olayomi pointed out that BUDDZone facilitates sensory-based learning with visual, auditory and tactile learning styles, deepening engagement and improving learning outcomes.

Similarly, Mrs. Jemide noted that WOWBii’s interactive solution not only brings an immersive learning experience to the children, it transforms the dynamics of teaching and learning.

“Technology is the future, without it, I don’t think anyone will be able to function optimally. Our school is in the business of raising child leaders; this is the time to let them get in tune with modern trends. I believe that WOWBii’s interactive solution will take learning to the next level such that our children can grow to be global leaders by competing and contributing meaningfully to the larger society.”
