Education Today must Only Talk about Updated Technologies



Should today’s education system be allowed to run just as it had been continuing for years? Don’t you think the typical resources like books and blackboards would still work out in educating the 21st century learners? Well, it’s not only students who are coming up with modernised thoughts and strategies but even instructors have started believing that technology will now play a key role in strengthening the future of today’s career aspirants.

So, what do you think? Education now must focus on process or content? To be precise, should education help students to know first how to learn, or should it typically make students understand things that are required to be known out of compulsion?

The answer is updated technologies……

Here are some fine instances:

  • Blended Learning – Recently, e2020 developed a curriculum that was rebranded as Edgenuity that let students take multiple choice tests, attend video lectures and answering multiple choice questions. This would be rather a more refreshing curriculum that would keep students engaged towards their lessons.
  • Tablets instead of desktops – A company called Amplify Inc. asks their students to make


    use of tablets in place of desktops. In the process, they help students obtain lessons through personalised learning and tests whether they have been able to attain sufficient information. In fact, students are provided new information based on their adaptive instruction.

  • Flipped classrooms – This is indeed an amazing learning mode that let students watch video lectures right from their homes instead of taking pains and doing the same at school. Video learning moreover has emerged to be one of the most effective learning strategies that can let students grasp their lessons faster and keep them engaged for hours.

As per resources from the government:

  • It was April 2013 when the rate of youth unemployment was recorded to be 16.1% for people aged between 16 and 24.
  • For individuals aged between 16 and 19, the rate of seasonally-adjusted unemployment was 24.1%
  • 13.1% was recorded in case of people aged from 20 to 24

Reports also say that social media is going to bring a lot of new trends in 2014. As a result, the learning procedures would no more be limited to classrooms and books. The wide availability of images through Pinterest and Instagram will generate more interest among the new age learners to take courses online since the majority of websites then would be designed with alluring yet useful pictures.



So, digitalisation is the keyword that would inspire students to peep beyond their classrooms and adopt newer strategies that can let them achieve their goals with more convenience and sheer affordability.

Deteriorating Condition of Free Education in Nigeria



In the modern society, education is definitely one of the basic necessities for overall development. You will not be able to get good job opportunities without getting proper education. Pursuing higher educational courses can help a person to get high salary and live a good and comfortable life. Hence it is mandatory that you invest properly in education for the betterment of yourself and your family. Moreover, learning will also enable you to accommodate and synthesize new ideas and help you to keep your mind open.

Hence, it is important that free education is provided to all those who are incapable of



paying high course fees. Free education will not only help the general population but it will be also advantageous to the nation as it will lead the way to a more competitive economy.

At present, free education in Nigeria is becoming an impossible task due to the rapid increase in the number of student enrolments as well as schools. The education scenario in the country has been falling in standard since the last few years. The universities, secondary schools and primary schools are really in a bad state which is affecting the standard and quality of education. Furthermore, the current political scenario in the nation has also made a negative impact on free education schemes.

According to Dr. Bright Okogu, the Director General in the Budget Office (Nigerian Federation), free education is gradually becoming impossible although it was widely available during the early stages of educational development in the nation. Due to the rise in number of schools and students, free education is proving to be a real challenge. However, the government is still subsidising education and funding has increased to N432.76 billion in 2013 from N189 billion in 2007 and N65.4 billion in 2001.

The allotment does not include provisions to the Petroleum Development Trust Fund (PDTF), Tertiary Institution Trust Fund (TETFUND) and Universal Basic Education Commission (UBEC). Dr. Okogu believes that in providing financial support to the education sector, it is necessary to make considerations about the growing number of students and schools.



Funding per head was much higher before the 1980s as there was a lower rate of student enrolment was well as fewer schools, as compared to the present scenario. During that era, most of the funding was provided by the public sector. However, the present administration has been able to raise allocation to the education sector even though there are some revenue challenges. The current education funding system in Nigeria indicates that the authorities were subsidising education, particularly at the tertiary level, in order to reduce the burden of tuition fees.

The Director General has said “Tuition fee is as low as N16, 000 per session and N50, 000 at its peak for some federal universities. At state level it averages about N100, 000 per session. This subsidy in education is not rational as some people who oppose increase in tuition fee are willing to pay higher for education in private schools.”

He has also suggested innovative collaboration in order to improve the state of funding the education sector in Nigeria. Dr. Okogu also recommended that the government as well as parents of the students should share the cost of education as this will significantly help in improving the condition of the students and schools. He believes that the alumni window should be utilised in the same way as it is used in developed countries.

Although there are many challenges in improving the state of free education in Nigeria, the government has taken several steps to increase funding and develop the situation for the benefit of the children.
