Instructor Seeks Better Deal For ICT Handlers


Governments at all levels have been enjoined to provide soft landing for Information and Communications Technology (ICT)teachers, if their plans to catch pupils/students young in that area is to materialise.
A Port Harcourt based ICT Instructor, Mr Charles Ojukwu said this in an interview with newsmen in Port Harcourt, Wednesday.
He said, if the governments could adopt an automatic employment system for ICT instructors/teachers they would gear up towards early education of the young people.
Ojukwu explained that poor motivation was part of the reasons why the dream of catching young people in ICT was yet to be achieved.
The ICT instructor who spoke under mixed feelings said that the idea was laudable, but lacked the required will power to drive it.
He said that such initiatives needed close-marking in order to meet the aim of the project.
Ojukwu, stressed that the best way to teach ICT was to expose young people from four years old to the system to enable them have proper under standing of the system.
He argued that imparting ICT skills on the adult was somehow difficult due to lack of adequate foundation.
The instructor, also called on Governments at all levels to set up monitoring bodies that would regulate the system.
He reasoned that without a sound regulating body, the instructors may not put in their best due to the stress involved in the system.
The ICT expert, who went memory lane, said that the most vibrant economies of the world today were so as a result of their ICT capacity.
