Groups train female primary school teachers on basic computer operation
The World Federation of Engineering Organisation (WEFO) in collaboration with the Women in Engineering (WIE) and committee of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) have concluded a one week training course in basic computer operation for female teachers drawn from various primary schools in Enugu State.
The organisations said they decided to embark on the training following a survey conducted where they discovered that most teachers in the state’s
public primary schools were not computer literate.
The state Commissioner for Science and Technology, Mr Patrick Ikpenwa in his address at the event reminded that realising the Millennium Development Goals (MDG} 3 would remain a mirage without real access to technology, especially among women.
Represented by the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Charles Maduekwe, the Commissioner said, “The mobile phone is a start, but Information and Communication Technology (ICT) goes beyond receiving and making calls on the phone.
