MoE seeks partnerships with tech companies to digitize learning

Education PS Belio Kipsang. The government is seeking partnerships with tech companies to create smart classrooms and resolve human resource issues in schools.

The Ministry of Education (MoE) has said that it is looking to partner with technology companies to aid teachers in institutions in effective curriculum delivery.

Principal Secretary for Basic Education Kipsang Belio revealed that the ministry is keen to work with tech companies to close the human resource gaps in learning institutions across the country.

He said this when he received the president of Seiko Epson Yasunori Ogawa in his office today, suggesting that technology could allow a limited number of teachers to teach thousands of learners across several schools in the smart classroom model.

“This is an opportunity for partnerships where we can use technology in resource sharing,” the PS said, to which Yasunori averred that their company is capable of connecting low energy ICT gadgets to create educational technology that can be beneficial to developing countries in Africa.

“We are in Africa and wish to invest in Africa. We encompass a philosophy of eliminating waste and increasing precision,” he noted.

Epson, which has its regional headquarters in Singapore, creates and delivers technology solutions for businesses and consumers; from inkjet printers and digital printing systems to 3LCD projectors, smart glasses, sensing systems and industrial robots.
