President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged the youth, and the entire society, to embrace technology for better grades in schools.

Speaking during the Global Partnership for Education Summit 2021, president Kenyatta said that it was high time that the governments incorporate technology for better and all-rounded education of learners.

There are, however, many challenges that stand in the way of respective governments towards achieving this noble goal; Covid-19 and other pandemics.

According to the president, many countries have suffered at the hands of many global pandemics – and have hence impeded their desire to fully absorb technology in learning.

“As governments and world citizens, we can use emerging solutions to enroll millions of children back in school, while transforming systems so that everyone can have access to quality, equitable and technology-enabled education,” said the head of state.

In July this year, while in the United Kingdom, President Kenyatta and his host Prime Minister Boris Johnson co-hosted a major education summit (GPE) in London, where they urged world leaders to invest in getting children into school and to build back better from Covid-19.

There has been, over two years now, a ravaging Covid-19 pandemic hitting the entire planet and hampering many sectors, including education.

According to President Kenyatta, the adoption of tech-learning will see a learner having a variety at his or her disposal and also engage with many learners outside the country in an attempt to build an exchange program mentality.

This would see many opportunities come up for both learners inside the country, and outside, to travel and have new experiences.

It must also be noted that even before the Covid-19 pandemic, there were a few cases of technology being used in learning.

Schools like Bridge Kenya used to provide education to some learners in underprivileged communities. These are the efforts that the president was fronting that should be augmented to see learners benefit a lot.
