Lagos State Deputy Governor, Dr. Idiat Adebule, has tasked Principals and Teachers in the state’s public and private schools to imbibe the new Information Communication Technology (ICT) in their teaching career if they must remain relevant and meet the 21st Century teaching and learning requirements.

The Deputy Governor, who stated this while speaking at the 29th Annual Conference of the All Nigeria Conference of Principals of Secondary Schools (ANCOPSS) held at the Secretariat, Alausa, noted that technology has reduced the world to a global village, adding that any educational system devoid of the use of integrated information technology teaching and learning aids would end up turning out half baked graduates who would be dysfunctional in the global setting.

She observed that ICT has become indispensable to effective teaching and learning process  in this new age, stressing that educators are left with no other option than to embrace the new teaching methodology or take a risk of becoming irrelevant  and out-dated in current education policy.

While underscoring the importance of the new information technology in effective teaching and learning, Adebule averred that ICT has made the world to become a global village where information and educational material from any part of the world can be accessed faster and easier, warning that anyone that fails to be ICT compliant would be irrelevant in the new scheme.

The Deputy Governor affirmed that the state government has over the years included information communication technology in training teachers and schools administrators to enable them compete favourably with their counterparts from other civilised climes in line with government effort to meet the challenges of ICT development in the state.

She reassured participants at the conference that the Governor Akinwunmi Ambode led administration would redouble its efforts in ensuring that the State’s education system is ICT compliant, while urging them to always update their knowledge of ICT as well as make use of relevant teaching and learning tools that would enable school children compete globally.

She however implored ANCOPSS to use the Conference as an avenue to appeal to their members from the State to corporate with the government in its effort to bridge infrastructure gap and improve public school environment.

She also urged them to rededicate themselves to duty and show good leadership quality so as to justify government huge investment in education.

Earlier, in her welcome address, ANCOPSS Chairman, Lagos State branch, Mrs. Omotunde Lawson stated that ANCOPSS is a professional organisation of principals of post primary schools approved by government to advance the development of education and welfare of its members.

She stated further that their annual conference has provided members the opportunity to exchange views and make recommendations on matters affecting education in Nigeria.
