Lagos State EKOEXCEL to be featured in the MEducation Alliance Symposium on education on September 30th.

The Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) led by the executive chairman, Hon. Wahab Alawiye King, organised multiple enrollment drive campaign rallies in the LG/LCDA’s of the state with the support of local community leaders and influencers including celebrities.

The objective of the exercise is to ensure no child of school age is left out of the free basic education opportunity driven by the Governor Sanwo Olu’s administration. Parents and communities as a whole were sensitised on the value of education, the potential impact in the lives of their children and the long-term impact it portends for Lagos State’s social and economic growth.

Primary education curriculum is powered by EKOEXCEL, an education reform programme that has recorded remarkable gains in enhancing the teacher pupil interaction experience through the use of technology (eLearning).

Recently, the EKOEXCEL program was selected as a case study in the 2021 mEducation Alliance symposium, with education policymakers and Foundational Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) builders from across the globe, sharing good practice initiatives, promising research, and convening impactful networking around EdTech to accelerate FLN, particularly in the developing country context.
