A Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), the Regalo Hope Foundation (RHF), has appealed to the Ministry of Education to encourage digitalisation of lesson notes, saying it made teaching and learning easier.
Chinenye Onuorah, the Founder/Project Director, RHF, who made the appeal during a seminar organised for school owners, educators and teachers, said that writing lesson notes should be abolished and discouraged among teachers.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the event with the theme, “Reshaping the Future of My School and I” was organised on Thursday in Lagos in commemoration of the 2023 World Teachers Day.
According to Onuorah, teachers should embrace the modern-day learning process, and apply apps and tools, because it is important that educators keep on learning to better themselves so they can continue to impart knowledge.
Onuorah said that the theme of the seminar, “The Teachers We Need for the Education We Want: The Global Imperative to Reverse Teacher Shortage” was in line with the theme of the 2023 World Teachers Day.
She urged educators to cultivate an environment that would foster growth, innovation, and inclusivity in their schools.
“The programme is designed to empower educators and school proprietors with the requisite knowledge and skills for compassionate and strategic leadership.
“Our collective aim is to usher in a brighter future for educational institutions and this programme will play a crucial role in making this vision a reality.
“This seminar is thoughtfully structured to address critical areas such as inclusion, branding, relationship management, communication, well-being and physical fitness, empathy and emotional intelligence,” the RHF founder said.
Also speaking, Akhere Akran, an Inclusive Education Advocate and Facilitator at the event, gave insight on strategic leadership and emotional intelligence as a measure for inclusive education.
