Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has decried the obsolete classroom teaching methods in the na­tion’s schools, saying educa­tion in the country can only get better when new technol­ogy is introduced.
Osinbajo, who stated this in Abuja on Tuesday at the Nigeria’s Annual Education Conference 2016, called on teachers to show

more com­mitment to their profession and embrace new technology in teaching aids.

He lamented that many children in the country do not know how to read and write due to poor teaching methods.
Earlier, the Minister for Edu­cation, Malam Adamu Adamu, said the conference was put in place to provide an opportuni­ty for communicating research evidence that will guide basic education policy and practice of the federal and state govern­ments.
Adamu said the conference will also go a long way in en­hancing quality education in the country.
His words: “Quality edu­cation is a fundamental hu­man right. We must therefore, evolve strategies to increase access to equity and quality as well as non-formal programs to ease the trauma of children who have experienced conflict and have been forcibly dis­placed.
“We expect that this con­ference will come up with approaches not only on how teaching and learning can be supported in emergencies, but also on disaster and risk re­duction and rebuilding social cohesion and resilience.”
Speaking in the same vein, the Minister of State for Edu­cation, Prof Anthony Anwu­kah, said the present adminis­tration is determined to boost the quality of education and teaching methods.
