TOWARDS improving learning outcomes in schools, especially due to the irregular class format occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Lagos State Government has partnered with an indigenous company, Gradely Technology Solutions Limited, on local digital apps and devices for teaching and learning.
The co-founder and CEO of the company, Mr. Boye Oshinaga, made the revelation during the launch of the learning platform in Lagos, attended by the State Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo.
He said that through the partnership, public school students would have free access to the digital platform (with integrated personalized video lessons, quizzes and a library of games on various topics, among others), adding that about 10,000 students from selected schools would benefit from the digital platform.
Oshinaga noted that the company made the decision to support public school students because most of them have limited access to digital devices.
He added that the company is also supporting over 300 Friends of The Deaf Academy students with a special learning app package.
Shedding light on the app, the company’s CTO, Mr. Femi Ibiwoye, said the digital platform was designed as an alternative classroom to teach the school curriculum.
He said that through the personalized platform, teachers would know about their students’ performance on an individual basis and also recommend the resources they need in case of a learning gap.
He said the platform has helped so many students in public and private schools.
