Covid-19: Lagos schools adopt online teaching; LASG uses radio for WAEC candidates
The covid-19 pandemic has forced schools in Lagos to adopt smart learning using e-platforms on social media to engage their pupils and students.
Some schools have created class-specific Whatsapp groups to reach their students. Teachers are encouraged to issue assignments and guides to students via the various Whatsapp groups.
Children-friendly Binta International School in Ajao Estate, Lagos is among the schools that have adopted the Whatsapp group system to actively engage its students. The school authority said it was to keep the students busy during the covid-19 compulsory holiday.
Meanwhile, Lagos State government has perfected plans to use radio stations to teach and mentor students preparing for the WAEC and NECO examinations. A notice by the state government reads:
