The Nigerian-British
Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) has sealed a partnership with EduFirst Ng to organize
the maiden edition of the EduTech Conference in Nigeria, which is believed will
help drive education using technology in Nigeria.





The conference with
the theme   Education, Technology
& Jobs; A Synergy that Works',
NBCC says is part of its mandateto
support the socioeconomic development of Nigeria through educational
development.





 We believe that the EduTech
Conference will provide a platform for government, regulatory agencies and
educational professionals to interact and share experiences on the
revitalization of Nigeria's education system, through the application of
technology and innovation as key ingredients for educational transformation,  
said Mr. Seyi Adeyemi, Chairman, Learning, Education and Training Committee at NBCC
at a press conference in Lagos today.






L-R Jadesola Ogundiminegha,  Project/Corporate Comms. Manager, Skool Media; Idris Oladipo, Digital  Innovation & Country Manager, EduFirst Ng; Bunmi Afolabi, Director  General, Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce; Seyi Adeyemi, Chairman,  Learning, Education & Training Committee, Nigerian-British Chamber  of Commerce and Abisola Oluwadamilola, Membership Officer,  Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce




Seyi added that the Conference would address the future outputs (Generation Y & Z) of the Nigerian educational system and ensure that they are prepared to be fully integrated into the world of work, can compete with global standards on Nigerian soil and are relevant in future endeavours.   This would cumulatively increase the economic value of the average Nigerian and the nation's per capita income,   he argued.





Some of the key
players that would represent diverse sectors at the conference are Arc Sunny
Echono, Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Education; Prince Abimbola
Olashore    Chairman, Board of Governors; Olashore International School; Prof
  Niran Adetoro    The Director, Academic Planning and Quality Assurance and
Research, Tai-Solarin University of Education, Ijebu, Ogun State and Mrs Lande
Atere    Head, First Academy; First Bank.





Others ar Dr Stephen
Oluwatobi    Curator, Hebron Lab; Covenant University; Prof Chantal Epie    Dean,
School of Management and Social Sciences, Pan African University; Emeka Okoye –
Semantic Architect & Consultant (Cymanticks) ; Kendra Nnachi    Startup and
Developers Program Manager, Facebook Nigeria and Yomi Adedeji    Co-founder,
Softcom Limited.





These experts,
according to Seyi will address issues such are closing the Employability Gap, Universities
as Catalyst for Innovation & Development  and Technology and the Future of Learning
Curricular.





Also speaking while
it is involved in the partnership, Mr. Idris Oladipo, Country Manager at
Edufirst.ng, an ed-tech company with visibility in 24 unity schools, which provides
digital experience to students, teachers and other stakeholders in Nigeria, noted
that improving teaching-learning experiences in schools leveraging technology remain
its priority.





He assured that
Edufirst, being a major player in the Edu-Tech subsector in Nigeria will
continue to develop the capacity for the emerging knowledge economy and
providing cutting edge technology solutions for the global competitiveness of
Nigerian children, youths and adults.





 While we appreciate
the efforts of government in creating an enabling environment in Nigeria,
stakeholders' engagement and private sector participation are critical success
factors to these endeavours,   Idris stated.





He also disclosed
that at the conference, there would be student technology pitches geared
towards social, environmental and economic change. This decision is taken
because they are the direct beneficiaries of the conference.





By 2050, Nigeria's
population, which is touted to be over 200 million based on United Nations
estimates with an average age of 17.9 years is projected to be well over 400
million people. This makes it one of the youngest countries in the world.
Having a share of 2.6 percent of the world's population, it is imperative that
the narrative is changed from what it is now to absorb the immense growth that
is upon us.
