    NAPPS Urges Shift To Digital Education System

    The National President of National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools, (NAPPS), Samira Jibir, has encouraged members of the association to integrate technology into the curriculum.

    This, she said would foster creativity and critical thinking among Nigeria students.

    Speaking during the 2024 Children’s Day celebration in Abuja, Jibir emphasized the importance of promoting inclusivity, diversity, and equity in education.

    She stressed the need for every child to have access to quality education and opportunities for personal growth, ensuring their safety, mental health, and emotional security.

    Recognizing the pivotal role of technology in shaping future prospects, Jibir advocated for equipping children with digital literacy and 21st-century skills.

    She also urged the government to support private schools, particularly those serving less privilleged children, through tax breaks, reduced multiple taxation, and enhanced teacher training programs.

    She underscored the active parental participation in school activities, curriculum discussions, and open communication with teachers.

    She added: “Empowerment encompasses more than just academic excellence. It encompasses fostering a nurturing environment that respects and nurtures the uniqueness of each child, regardless of their background, abilities, or circumstances.

    “Furthermore, as we strive to empower the Nigerian child for the future, we must recognize the pivotal role of technology in shaping their lives and prospects in the future workspace.

    “In an increasingly digital world, we must equip our children with digital literacy or 21st century skills, enabling them to harness the power of technology for learning, innovation, and empowerment while safeguarding them from its potential risks and pitfalls.”
