EDUCATION: Firm Boosts Digital Learning In Osun

DSTVIn line with its continuous corporate social investment drive, provider of premium pay-TV services on the DStv and GOtv platforms in Nigeria, MultiChoice said it had provided e-learning facilities for students of 10 public schools in Osun State to allow them have access to world-class learning facilities. The intervention, which comprises a TV set, a HD PVR decoder, satellite dish, a power generator, uninterrupted power system (UPS), a set of chairs and desks for the laboratory, among others, enables school children access educational TV channels.
The channels, according to the company, include Discovery Channel, National Geographic, BBC Knowledge, BBC World, History Channel, Animal Planet and Mindset Learn, at no cost.
The novel intervention has been introduced to 245 schools in 24 states of the federation and has been proven to impact critically on the knowledge levels and understanding, especially of technical subject areas by students. It is now being extended to students of 10 public secondary schools in Osun State, bringing the total to 255 in 25 states across the country.
At a commemorative inauguration ceremony of the 10 new MultiChoice Resource Centres (MRC) held at Ataoja School of Science, Osogbo, recently, the company said the launch marked the commencement of the phase nine of the MRC project, which include scheduled launches in some select states which will soon be announced by the company. Head, Public Relations, MultiChoice, Mr. Segun Fayose in a release, said, “The resource centre initiative has grown from four centres at inception to 255 schools in 25 states of the federation.”
According to him, the technological, economic, socio-political advancement of any country has a direct correlation with its level of educational development and that the future of a country is intrinsically tied to the quality of education that the youths are exposed, a belief which informs MultiChoice’s roll-out of the audio-visual learning aid across the country.
In her address, the Deputy Governor of Osun State, Mrs. Titi-Laoye Tomori, who doubles as the Commissioner of Education in the state, lauded the company and its implementing partner, Innovative Technology Literacy Services Limited, for the initiative which she described as a veritable tool for the provision of valuable learning resource components for public schools in the country.
She noted that the launch of the project in Osogbo had put Osun as the 25th beneficiary state in the country, stressing that the partnership reaffirms the commitment of the state in providing qualitative education to the people of the state.
