The State Minister for Primary Education has launched digital learning program for pupils Isemba of Isemba Primary School Kingandalo Sub County in Mayuge district.
Rosemary Seninde launched the program jointly sponsored by Teach Uganda and War Child Holland, local based non-governmental organizations on Saturday 27th March 2021.
During the launch, pupils entertained guests who included Seninde and other education officials through dancing while others held an exhibition at the school to showcase the products they made during the COVID 19 lock down.
The executive director Teach Uganda, James Arinaitwe said they decided to adopt the digital learning program in community rural schools after discovering that most pupils who had been hit by COVID 19 were left behind because they could not afford access channels of education like television sets or radio sets.
Arinaitwe said the digital learning program helps a child especially in lower classes adopt quickly compared to classroom education since he will be in control of the system.
Seninde said the digital learning program will help accelerate learning skills of pupils.
Seninde also appealed to other schools elsewhere to adopt the digital learning program since it helps pupils gain courage of attending classes besides improving on their vocabulary.
