The Future of Education Summit
#Lekki2021

 

This edition of The Future of Education Summit is aimed at bringing together concerned stakeholders within and around Lagos to deliberate on challenges that are confronting education in the region and design new actionable plans to tackle such problems.

These plans will be structured around adoption of cost-effective and efficient technologies as foundational platforms for implementing all recommended solutions.

Furthermore, all resolutions at this edition of the summit will be harmonized with other resolutions from past summits and other future editions as they are being held in strategic cities across the continent.

From city to city and region to region, we shall string together all resolutions and consolidate all actionable plans from all editions of the summit into a centralized, accessible framework that will eventually become a new, veritable standard for ensuring quality education and equal learning opportunities for all.

For all editions of the summit in this current (2021/22) series, independent consultants and coaches in the education sector are especially invited as they will form the next league of EdTech champions with important roles to play in entrenching the use of technology in the process of teaching and learning at schools across Africa.

Teachers, parents and EdTech enthusiasts are also invited.

Event Highlights.

Breakfast, Brunch & Networking

Because there's so much to accomplish that day, we are going to have to start quite early in the morning and till late in the afternoon. So, we don't want empty stomachs to get in the way of all crucial conversations we are going to have and all important works we need to do at the summit. That's why we are going to start with breakfast and there will also be brunch later in the day. These breaks will also afford participants unique windows for networking

Breakout Sessions & Plenary

Participants will have the liberty to join any of the parallel sessions where identified problems are being deliberated upon. Each cluster will discuss specific challenges that are confronting education in their respective domains and come up with solutions to these problems. These sessions will be followed by a plenary session where all identified challenges and suggested solutions will be harmonized and published into the unified framework for advancing education in Africa.

Convergence of EdTech & EdConsults

Private consultants and coaches have been playing important roles in ensuring quality educational processes at schools across Africa. Without their efforts over the years, there wouldn't have been any infusion of innovation in African classrooms at all. This is why participating consultants and coaches at all editions of the summit across Africa will be empowered to start deploying EdTech solutions for schools along with their edconsult services.

9:00am to 10:00am

BREAKFAST, INTRODUCTIONS, NETWORKING & WELCOME ADDRESS

.

10:00am to 10:30am

Presentation of Problem:
INADEQUATE, CONFLICTING CURRICULAR & FALLING STANDARDS OF TEXTBOOKS.

Because government approved curricular are rather inadequate and not completely suitable for this age, schools now implement different curricular. This makes a rubbish of the learning system as disparities set in.

Also, good textbooks with quality contents have become so expensive and scarce in classrooms!

10:30am to 11:00am

Presentation of Problem:
TEACHERS' INCOMPETENCE & DIMINISHING INTEREST IN THE PROFESSION

The falling standards of education generally, is making it more and more difficult to find new teachers that are more knowledgeable than the ones we have presently and certainly, extremely intelligent professional teachers now have salary expectations that are way above most schools' budgets. As such, those who are supposed to be teachers are following other career paths.

11:00pm to 11:30am

Presentation of Problem:
THE DANGERS OF OUT OF SCHOOL CHILDREN & INCREASING NUMBERS OF SUB-STANDARD SCHOOLS.

Over one-fifth of children between the ages of 6 and 11 in Sub-Saharan Africa are out of school. These out-of-school children are most likely the ones that grow up to become the deadly terrorists and kidnappers that torment us all.

Plus, children who spend their EYFS at mushroom schools are most likely going to grow up to become those we like to dismiss as "bad graduates".

11:30am to 12 Noon

Presentation of Problem:
DISAPPEARING LABS, DEARTH OF EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES & INEFFECTIVE SCHOOLS SUPERVISION.

It's becoming increasingly impossible for most schools to set up basic science laboratories and other practical studios or workshops that required for a complete and meaningful learning process. The few available labs, studios and workshops are rather scanty with little or inadequate resources to carry out simple STEM experiments.

Also, excursions, inter-school academic and extra-curricular activities that are intrinsic parts of learning are no longer happening.

12:00pm to 12:30pm

Parallel Breakout Session 1.1.
DELIBERATIONS ON PROPOSED SOLUTIONS FOR INADEQUATE, CONFLICTING CURRICULAR & FALLING STANDARDS OF TEXTBOOKS:
  1. Schools should be prevailed upon to deploy School & Learning Management Systems that will have adaptive curriculum development solutions with APIs that will be open to education regulators for ratification and cross-school recommendations thereby, ensuring a streamlined curriculum validation system.
  2. Development of superior contents that will be adequate and suitable for all topics and subjects of all classes by seasoned teachers should be encouraged. These contents should be distributed in electronic formats that will accommodate rich multimedia and interactive functions. Adopting this system will eliminate costs of textbook printing and make learning resources quite affordable for all!

12:00pm to 12:30pm

Parallel Breakout Session 1.2.
DELIBERATIONS ON PROPOSED SOLUTIONS FOR TEACHERS' INCOMPETENCE & DIMINISHING INTEREST IN THE PROFESSION
  1. Certified consultants and professional coaches should be rallied together and given digital platforms through which they can roll out core-skill education courses, self-paced continuous learning modules and personal development program for teachers in conjunction with appropriate institutes. These programs will be conveniently integrated into the teachers' areas of schools' portals for easy access.
  2. The process of teaching and learning should be digitized so that new technologies (AI, VR, etc.) can be leveraged to assist teachers in areas of lesson planning and also, enable remote and part-time teaching options that will attract more qualified individuals to the teaching profession through a digital intercontinental framework that enables teachers to syndicate their resources and services.

12:30pm to 1:00pm

Parallel Breakout Session 2.1.
DELIBERATIONS ON PROPOSED SOLUTIONS FOR THE DANGERS OF OUT OF SCHOOL CHILDREN & INCREASING NUMBERS OF SUB-STANDARD SCHOOLS.
  1. The ideas of creating Hybrid Schools in remote places and BreakOut Classrooms in less-privileged communities should be pushed into reality. These disruptive schooling methods are faster and cost-effective compared to establishment of traditional schools. The cost of building one conventional school in a single location will be adequate to set up 10 Hybrid Schools in different remote places and even, technology that drives the hybrid schools will ensure learning qualities with little or no physical supervision.
  2. Instead of abolishing low-budget schools, they should be fitted with technologies that will make it possible for standard, established schools to adopt them and moderate (remotely) their day-to-day academic activities.

12:30pm to 1:00pm

2nd Parallel Breakout Session 2.2.
DELIBERATIONS ON PROPOSED SOLUTIONS FORbDISAPPEARING LABS, DEARTH OF EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES & INEFFECTIVE SCHOOLS SUPERVISION.
  1. Given the high cost of setting up physical standard laboratories, studios and workshops and how a great number of schools might not be able to afford such expedition, schools should be encouraged to take advantage of the possibilities that Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality and Extended Reality technologies offer in the areas of simulation. Almost all STEM activities have been rendered into virtual experiences that can be relived through simple inexpensive gadgets like VR Glasses.
  2. Development of gamified virtual resources for extra-curricular activities should be encouraged.
  3. Also, parents should be encouraged to acquire miniaturized STEM kits for the children.
