Use of Technology in Digitalizing Education in Nigeria

T

he state of education in Nigeria is dismal, especially in rural areas. Access to good education is scarce, and where it isn’t, it’s ridiculously expensive. This is due to the enormous amount of resources that go into setting up a school.

Infrastructure, Licensing, Staff payment, Environmental maintenance are some of the major culprits, and rightly so.


In a nation ravaged by poverty, there must be ways to give access to quality education beyond the confines of the classroom, or school. This is

where Digitalization comes in. In this ever digital world where you have computers more and more becoming a prerequisite for learning, it is wise to harness the power these devices wield and channel them towards creating a system that can cater for education with or without the classroom.




Taking Over

Technology keeps on advancing and making life easier. People make use of their computers and cellular devices more often than not these days and this is drastically improving the way we accomplish tasks, keep records, and even deliver lecturers all over the world. Technology in Nigeria is no exception. There has been consistent growth in the Nigerian Tech space, and a conscious effort to digitalize processes. Swizel has set out to deliver digital education to the Nigerian Education Sector.




Technology has made it possible for students in rural areas to gain access to standard education from anywhere in the world, up to certificate level. The opportunities are endless.


A step further in Nigerian education

A step further would be the harnessing of technology to suit both academic and administrative needs and processes. This is what the Project Appman brings to the table.

We envision such a time when every school would be capable of offering virtual options for every course, such that students who cannot afford to go to school, can have school meet them halfway through a simple device.

We envision a time when field trips will be turned to webinars, so that students who cannot afford to go on trips, can traverse within the screens of their devices and gain relevant experience equal to that got on the field.

We envision a time when self learning can be encouraged, practised and rewarded. A time when we can achieve equitable access to learning material and content to every individual. 


A step further is Swizel Technologies' latest solution "Project Appman"


In the realm of Tech, Swizel Technologies has broken ground with the Project Appman. This web portal/mobile application was built to revolutionize how education is being delivered and managed in Nigeria.
