Stakeholders demand improved curriculum, technology hubs for students - ITREALMS

Some Lagos stakeholders have demanded from government at all levels to upgrade education curriculum and provide more technology hubs for students in tertiary institutions, reports ITREALMS.

According to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the stakeholders made this call at the closing of a free four-weekend Java training programme organised by Paradigm Initiative.

About 17 undergraduates from the University of Lagos, Yaba College of Technology and Lagos State College of Health Technology attended the training.

Mr James Onyenenue, a Java Consultant, said that government should empower and encourage more institutions by providing enough computers in schools.

“Imagine a situation where the government says every student should have access to a computer or laptop, it would be a different story.

“There is the challenge of networking for young people to meet with those who can empower them in coding.

“If the government can create a platform such as Co-Creation hub where students can have access to learning or meet other experienced and professional programmers, it will change a lot of things,” he said.
Mr Solomon Ogunbowale, a Computer Science student at the University of Lagos, said that the four-weekend training had exposed him to programming not taught in schools.
