The Coral Reef Innovation Lab International, in partnership with Blessed Virgin Mary Magnificent Hat, closed with a day of education debate on National Digital Literacy in order to keep up with the 21st century technology education.
On Thursday, July 21, 2022, at the Murex Plaza in Monrovia, education stakeholders and the media came together for the one-day education 4.0 digital literacy conversation to share knowledge about the train the trainer module for instructors in all schools.
The managing partner of Coral Reef Innovative Hub, Mr. Richard Osei-Anim, provided an overview, stating that the train the trainer education module is created to improve teachers’ ability to deliver digital learning to students as it is anticipated that three teachers per school will be trained to take advantage of its initial stages.
Since it is envisaged that three teachers per school will be educated to take advantage of its initial stages, the train the trainer education module is designed to improve teachers’ capacity to deliver digital learning to students.
The national digital literacy project will entail providing broadband devices for all students and building the skills of all implementers, including teachers.
The digital literacy project aims to create and provide appropriate information for digital learners, construct a strategy to put devices and accessories together and refurbish them, and create a simulation workshop for students.
The Coral Reef Innovation Lab is a Ghana-based learning institution that aims to equip students with the technology, resources, and smart lab skills they need to increase their employability and foster entrepreneurship across the African continent.
The digital project, meanwhile, presents a novel idea for establishing “makers paces” in technical and vocational schools throughout Liberia by giving students hands-on creative ways to inspire them to learn new skills, design, experiment, build, and invent while deeply engrossed in science, engineering, and tinkering.
Students will learn 3D modeling and printing, CNC milling, the internet of things, laser cutting, microcontroller programming, creating virtual and mobile applications, and other skills.
In order to modernize the country’s educational system, the project also aims to redefine the role of teachers by supplying them with the digital knowledge and mindsets necessary to satisfy their generational values and equip Liberian students with the skills they need to succeed in the outside world.
