In   its   renewed   efforts   towards   seeking   the   advancement   of   teaching profession   in   Nigeria,   Skool   Media   Nigeria   Limited   has   called   on   all education stakeholders in the country to join forces in empowering Nigerian teachers.
This   clarion   call   is   germane   as   teachers   all   over   the   worldcelebrate   “World   Teachers   Day”.   World   Teachers   Day   is   celebrated   on October 5 annually.
In a press release signed by the Head of Corporate Communication,  My Sola Oluwadare,  he said It   is   necessary   to   celebrate   our   teachers   this   day   being   the   agents   of change   for   the   next   generation.
He said: “However,   all   stakeholders   must   come together to team up with the government to build a teaching industry that we will all be proud of; and Skool Media will continue to play a noble role in this regard.
“Skool Media appreciates the Federal Ministry of Education for its recent approval   of   the  Teachers   Digital   Literacy   Programme   (TDLP)   which   is targeted towards equipping teachers with adequate digital skills to develop instructional contents that will make learning more interesting to students. With   the   approval   of   TDLP,   Skool   Media   has   commenced   training   of teachers in   the Federal Unity   Colleges  (FUC)  in phases  across  the  six geopolitical  zones  in  Information Communication  Technology (ICT)   as  it affects educational management. This is being done to support teachers to become   tech   savvy   and   ICT   compliant   so   that   they   can   have   a   wider exposure into inspiring and teaching globally competitive learners.”
The Chief Executive  Officer of Skool Media, Mr. Moses Imayi said,  it is necessary for teachers to leverage the potential of multimedia and onliner resources   to   motivate   their   students   to   learn   better;   and   to   effectively enhance the delivery of instructional content to improve teaching-learning outcomes.
He said Skool Media believes that there is need for  school curricular to be  fully galvanized   to   prepare   Nigerian   students   for   the   21st  century   workplace .
“The Nigerian child must   be   prepared   to   take   up   the   challenges   of   modern   workplace   by developing   relevant   technology   skills   capable   of   making   them   equal   in tasks   to   their   colleagues   in   the   developed   countries.   This   cannot   be achieved without building teachers who are digitally skilled for the task.
” At   Skool   Media,   we   will   continue   to   collaborate   with   the   education stakeholders in Nigeria to bridge these gaps. Our Teachers Digital Literacy Centres in most Federal Unity Colleges will continue to serve as avenues to acquire necessary skills for Nigerian teachers to be equipped to be able compete with their counterparts globally,” he said.
