How A1Tutor technology transforms education in Africa

How A1Tutor technology transforms education in Africa

Teaching with technology greatly improves learning. The world has evolved from more traditional methods of learning to digital patterns and every school system or educator that isn’t optimising tools such as digital methodologies will lag behind. This tool helps to foster accuracy, accountability, development, and the achievement of school-academic objectives.

At all levels, education in Africa is in dire need of intervention. On the supply side, there are more students or prospective students than there are schools. According to the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), about 10.5 million children in Nigeria between the ages of 5-14 are out of school and one in every five out-of-school children in the world is in Nigeria.

Ed-tech is a crucial technological development and advancement of the twenty-first century. Many years ago, students would gladly read an entire textbook and pat their selves on the back about it. Learners of the twenty-first century, on the other hand, are more interested in digital learning methods, precise and portable learning materials than previous generations.

New concepts of learning like distance learning are becoming increasingly popular among students. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, many students have zero options except to learn online.
It’s astonishing to think about how far things have come! There’s no denying the significant role that Ed-tech now plays in virtually all aspects of today’s Education and Learning.

A1tutor is an Educational Technology (EdTech) company whose mission is to make high-quality, individualised educational content available to Primary, Secondary, and Post-Secondary students throughout Africa. It is an African-owned and African-focused organisation with a strong presence in the Nigerian educational sector and quick expansion into the West African area and beyond. Through specialised instructional content that is easily available in numerous formats and across multiple platforms, the company takes a technology-driven, student-centered approach to learning.
