Nahid for int’l standard education
DHAKA: Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid Wednesday urged the teachers to educate themselves with international standard education.
“They have to learn the use of technology if new generations build up with parallel standard of the world,” he said.
The minister came up with the plea while addressing a programme of certificate distribution at Dhaka Teachers’ Training College.
The certificates were distributed among teachers who received training on ‘Digital Content Development’.
Indicating the trained teachers, he said, “The project will bring a revolutionary change in education sector to build up Digital Bangladesh.”
Nahid also said multimedia classes will be introduced in 2,500 schools across the country and the process of providing laptop, speaker and projector for schools is underway.
Besides, the government appointed a computer teacher for those schools but all teachers have to attain knowledge about computer. Through this, creative activities of teacher will increase, he added.
Secretary of Education Ministry Dr Kamal Abdul Naser Chowdhury said the government has inked deal with Doel.
“We already trained up 6,200 teachers. We hoped that we have to be able to introduce multimedia classes in 2,500 schools before 2016,” he said.
With Teachers Training College Principal Professor Dipak Kumar Nag in the chair, the program was also addressed, among others, by Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Department Director General M Noman-ur-Rashid, Dhaka Education Board Chairman Professor Fahima Khatun and ICT Project Director Abul Kalam Azad.
