World Teachers’ Day: Edo leveraging tech, equipping teachers to restructure education

By Isaac Olamikan

Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, has celebrated teachers in the state, noting that the government is leveraging technology and equipping the teachers with the requisite knowledge and digital skills to improve learning outcomes in the state.

Obaseki said this in commemoration of the 2022 World Teachers’ Day, a global event launched by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1994 to celebrate teachers across the globe.

The governor, who hailed the teachers for being the champions of the government’s reforms in the education sector, assured that the government will continue to prioritize their welfare, ensuring that they are adequately rewarded for their role in grooming and molding the minds of future leaders of the state and nation.

He said, “Today, being World Teachers Day, it is important to appreciate the efforts of our teachers who are playing huge roles in sustaining our administration’s efforts at restructuring the education sector, contributing effectively to the development of our state and nation.

“We understand the role of education in achieving sustainable growth and development in society, which is only possible through continuous investment in our teachers.

“Our government has continued to pay critical attention to teachers in the state, ensuring that they have the tools and knowledge to groom the next generation of Edo leaders. We have also sustained investment in upskilling and providing teachers in our schools with modern tools and skills to improve teaching and learning in the state.

“We recently trained over 3,000 teachers, head teachers, and principals on digital pedagogy as part of efforts to kick off the implementation and onboarding of junior secondary schools into our novel EdoBEST programme. This is apart from several other training for teachers in the state to sustain the gains recorded in the education sector.

“The government is the largest provider of basic education services in the state, and we are optimistic that our deliberate investment in teachers through professional development programmes will lead to measurable improvement in the learning outcomes of all our students located in urban, rural, and even hard-to-reach areas of our state.”
