Research lab partners Lagos schools on computer literacy
An education technology research lab, Code 4TEEN, has partnered with other brands in the sector to roll out a programme on computer language to over 100 pupils across schools in Lagos State.
The lab after investing three years into broad research has launched another software product ‘Andrew Teaches Coding’, an automated textbook whose robust functionalities creates an eco-system for Computer Language.
Andrew Teaches Coding is designed to help primary schools to create and run Computer Language as a time-tabled subject.
Code 4TEEN director for research and technology, Otaru Daudu, said the lad “understood from day one that the true solution to technology literacy resides in empowerment of educational systems to drive the code education process without depending on 3rd party intervention.
“We also understand what this will require is a tested curriculum, a scalable means of delivery as well as a continuous plan for up-skilling all ICT teachers so they are capable of delivering the curriculum independently as they do with ICT or Math or English.
“For this reason, we are building our company’s strengths around these three pillars. We also choose to focus on empowering schools as we believe children spend 70% of their childhood under the influence of ‘school’, hence positioning the school as the foremost catalyst in the technology literacy drive globally, with regards to the next generation.”
