Under the direction of Governor Douye Diri, the Bayelsa State Government has intensified digital learning in Nigeria as its technology-based BayelsaPRIME basic education reform program begins training for an additional 2,300 teachers in Yenagoa, the state capital.

The addition of the teachers from the Southern Ijaw, Nembe, Ekeremor, and Brass local government areas brings the total number of educators trained to deliver lessons using digital platforms and devices over the past eight months to 4,500.

BayelsaPRIME was launched in the first quarter of 2023 by the government to improve technology use in teaching, learning, quality assurance procedures, and basic education services in state-owned primary schools. Dr. Gentle Emelah, the education commissioner, said, “This is a unique professional development opportunity for teachers that have been invited here for this historical training. At the end of the training, these teachers will have the capacity to deliver classes using a modern approach. Also, more children will be lifted from learning poverty across our state.”

At the program, teachers acquire new teaching and learning approaches, effective technology-based lesson delivery strategies, cutting-edge classroom management strategies employing specific web-based applications, child safety strategies, and many other 21st-century classroom-relevant abilities.

After the course, a teacher tablet will be given to each teacher to receive daily lesson notes and guidelines to help them with their classes. The tablets will also be used for managing classrooms, keeping track of time and records, and communicating effectively between educators and legislators in the state capital. Every headteacher attending the program will receive a smartphone, which will simplify management at the school level.

The reform program, which will start in September, is anticipated to benefit 51,000 kids in four new local government regions. Since the reform’s inception in February, 42,000 kids in the Yenagoa, Sagbama, Opokuma/Kolokuma, and Ogbia local government areas have benefited.

Thanks to the ongoing training, four new local governments are currently part of the reform initiative.
