The founder of an online learning platform Slum2School, Otto Orondam, has come up with a helpful solution for the problem of learning during the pandemic when children are forced to stay at home.
He stated that his organisation has made it possible for 948 children to learn from the comfort of their homes with their first Virtual Learning Classroom Africa.
He stated on Twitter that the virtual classroom can accommodate 948 children at the moment but they are aiming to reach 10 000 children.
The minister of education, Adamu Adamu, announced that secondary schools under the control of the federal government will not be reopening for the upcoming examinations.
The top presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi, made this known via a thread on Twitter, on Wednesday the 8th of July 2020.
The virtual classes still help the learners even though they will be having their exams.
The learners can still catch up with their school work for the rest of the year so that if they either have to start a new grade next year they are up to speed with what was meant to be taught in the previous grade, or if they have to repeat the grade they’re in this year they may know what is required of them.
