The 1st deputy Katikkiro and minister for innovation and technology Professor Twaha Kigongo Kaawaase has urged teachers to start deploying technology subjects to students to enable them progress in technological issues as per the advancement in technology in this century.
Prof. Kaawaase said this while opening a three day education camp at Old Kampala secondary school.
In his message, Prof Kaawaase called on the students and the society in general to embrace new technology as it is now a requirement with no option. He said everything has now changed from analog to digital; also people’s mind should advance to digital.
Technologies developed in the last decade and powered by new analytics capabilities and increasingly large amounts of data immediately available on students' progress have given institutions new options to intervene and help students before it's too late. Pioneering colleges and universities have begun actively using these capabilities to improve their students' rates of retention and completion.
We encourage each college or university to develop initiatives and programs that build on its strengths and unique characteristics.
He added the deployment of these technologies, which offer promising traction in an area known for its intractability, student success is more important.
Exhibitors from different spheres showcased what they have in their dockets and students took a tour of various stalls to be enlightened about what they do.
