Samsung Electronics West Africa has partnered with Skool Media and the Federal Ministry of Education to digitalize classrooms across unity schools in Nigeria, providing students with the opportunity to have their classrooms literally put in their palms.
The deal will see classrooms across 104 unity schools in Nigeria receive Samsung tablet devices paired with relevant and applicable educational content customized with Skool Media content. The classrooms will also get Samsung Electronic Boards, Wireless Printers and wireless connectivity in a move to turn classrooms across Nigeria into “Smart classrooms”.
Speaking on the new partnership, Director, Business to Business, Samsung Electronics West Africa, Charles Ojei said “This Solution provides tablets for students with relevant and practical educational content hence putting the classroom in the palms of the students. This makes the classroom interactive, collaborative and conducive for students and teachers.”
The vision is to see the average Nigerian student become familiar and truly comfortable with learning in a digitalized classroom to better education in the country, build IT competence of the next generation of leaders and provide employment opportunities to young Nigerian graduates.
