NAPPS, firm partner on digital reform in education
The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools have partnered with an Education technology solution provider SchoolTry to accelerate the digital transformation of the Nigerian education sector.
A statement by the Chief Executive Officer of SchoolTry, Mr Ismail Eleburuike, on Thursday said the two parties signed a memorandum of agreement on August 19 to help Nigerian schools to boost their efficiency, attract more students and improve educational outcomes.
The statement reads in part, “Through this agreement, SchoolTry is underscoring its commitment to lead the digitalisation of education delivery in Nigeria. We are pleased by the enthusiasm for our solutions within the Nigerian market and look forward to supporting other African countries to actualise similar objectives.
“Since the dawn of the 21st century, policymakers, schools and other education sector stakeholders have sought for ways to ensure that Nigerian schools are not left behind their global counterparts in the digital age. Schools have nevertheless been operating under difficult conditions with challenges ranging from inefficient paper-based processes, poor information and administration systems as well as costly fragmented digital solutions.
“In its quest to address these challenges, the current leadership of NAPPS has engaged SchoolTry to provide a unique integrated mobile and web platform for schools to connect in realtime with teachers, students, parents and all stakeholders. This platform, through its myriad of value-adding features, will enable schools to operate more efficiently and to boldly join their international counterparts to thrive in the globalised digital world.”
