E-learning feedback: Kaduna Govt introduces weekly tv, radio chats

The Kaduna State Ministry of Education says it has introduced weekly television and radio live chats so as to get feedback from learners and parents on its electronic learning ( radio and television) programmes.

The Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mrs Phoebe Yayi, made this known in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria in Kaduna on Thursday.

NAN reports that the government had in April, begun a television and radio teaching programmes for students to learn at home due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Yayi explained that the live chats hold every Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. and features subject teachers so that the learners and parents can call and get instant feedback.

She said that the live chats were being supported by the World Bank-supported Global Partnership for Education (GPE) and Nigeria Partnership for Education Project (NIPEP).

The live chats provided the opportunity for teachers, pupils and students, including parents and relevant stakeholders to interact.

“It’s a call-in programme for pupils and students to call and ask questions, while parents and stakeholders make observations and suggestions on the way forward.

“The state government will continue to initiate ideas that will improve the delivery of quality teaching to our children via electronic platforms to keep them learning at home,” she said.

The permanent secretary added that the GPE and NIPEP had also supported the training of teachers on internet services and the use of online platforms like Zoom and Google class for virtual teaching.

“We will continue to improve in the delivery of e-learning to our children while we await the reopening of schools when it becomes safe to open schools,” she said.
