This is a part of the wider plan to supply the devices to schools as the State progressively scales up the programme to cover the entire educational cycle.

It is expected that this will create job and business opportunities apart from the technology transfer that will accrue for Kenyans.

Digital Learning Programme

At least 72,000 teachers have been trained on how to teach computers in Kenyan public schools under the government’s Digital Learning Programme (DLP).

According to Education Permanent Secretary Belio Kipsang, the move is to guarantee the success of the DLP that is aimed at revolutionising education for teachers and students alike.

The programme has introduced tablets in the classrooms and will make teaching and learning a lot more exciting for teachers and learners.

Kipsang said the educational technology created opportunities for teachers and learners alike to be innovative given the novelty of teaching and learning environment in the classroom and beyond.

“Teaches still remained crucial in providing the guidance and coaching needed for delivery the prescribed curriculum,” the PS said in a statement wired to newsrooms.

He revealed that some 20,000 public primary schools had been connected to the national grid to build part of the infrastructure that integration of ICT in schools requires.

“This constitutes 90% of the public schools,” Kipsang said, adding that the rest will be connected soon to facilitate teaching and learning on digital platform.
