What you need to know:

  • In the DigiSchool, there will exist two types of residents — the digital natives and the digital immigrants.
  • Students will be the natives and teachers will be the immigrants.

The DigiSchool is with us. The Ministry of Information Communications and Technology (ICT) officially launched the DigiSchool program in March this year. With the disbursement of more than 500,000 laptops and tablets to selected schools across the counties, the first phase of the digitisation of learning in schools is already in place. In the second phase, another batch of tablets and devices will be distributed. By April 2017, more than one million devices will have been distributed to schools across the country.
