The training is coming only few days after the state government approved the full roll-out of the Edo Basic Education Sector Transformation (Edo-BEST) programme, which will see over 60,000 pupils in three local governments of the state access top-of-the-range basic education powered by technology. The Edo-BEST programme is a state-wide basic education reform that will see schools leapfrog and keep track of the emerging issues in digitally-driven pedagogy.

The state government is overhauling its education sector to be more responsive to needs of the society and the continuous training of teachers to teach in line with the demands of the digital age is one of the Governor Obaseki-led administration’s goals for the sector.
