Slum2School Africa has launched its first virtual learning classroom in Africa, as shared in a tweet announcement by founder, Otto Orondaam.
Starting off with a student capacity of 948 children, the goal is to reach 10,000 underserved learners through a virtual and cluster learning program.
This is hinged on the campaign for deserving Nigerian Children across slums and remote communities to access the education they desperately need for a better future through technology.
The development of connecting students during the home-based learning experience through technology proves useful for a time where many underserved school children across Nigeria are being confronted with the grim reality of schools being closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, with no end in sight. Not only will this development be effective in providing access to education but the psycho-social support for these children in form of tracking and monitoring. Allowing children to learn even in difficult times and in reducing the negative-impact of the stay-at-home order.
