The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic exposed the gaps in the Nigerian educational sector. A crucial gap is the inability of schools to seamlessly adopt the use of technology for their sustainability. For instance, the COVID-19-induced lockdown imposed by the government rendered all physical educational activities inoperative. As such, there arose the need for the adoption of remote learning which would require the input of technology.
While the pandemic gave great insight into the use of technology for attaining school sustainability, quite a good number of schools still could not exploit the potential of technology for school sustainability.
The goals of this year’s conference are to show school leaders how to embrace and deploy technology in developing and deploying technology to further enhance their school processes. It will also highlight important policy issues that may impact on the deployment and use of technology in schools, especially at the grassroots.
1. Viable Framework for Tech Deployment and Adoption in Low-Cost Schools
