‘ICT to improve learning’

STEVEN MVULA, Lusaka
GOVERNMENT is moving away from conventional way of learning and is adopting information and communications technology (ICT) because it is cheaper and may reduce the budgetary allocation by 30 percent, Minister of Education, Science, Vocational Training and Early Education Michael Kaingu has said.
Dr Kaingu told Parliament yesterday that Government is using ICT to improve learning in institutions of learning and has since secured 75 computers for each province for use in schools.
He said this in response to Mapatizya member of Parliament Clive Miyanda (UPND), who wanted to know if Government has any plans to construct another library at the University of Zambia (UNZA) in order to accommodate the increased number of students.
Dr Kaingu, however, said Government will build another physical library at UNZA in 2017.
