Bungoma County has partnered with Early Childhood Development and Education (EIDU) to introduce a digital learning program for young learners in the county.
The program will be deployed in 36 ECDE Centers across the county, benefiting about 3,233 learners in grades PP1 and PP2.
About 108 teachers will be trained on how to use smart teaching devices to plan and deliver highly engaging lessons in the classroom, supporting them in the implementation of the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC).
This partnership is a major step towards integrating technology into the learning system at the county level. It aligns with the Presidential Working Party on Education Reform, Kenya Vision 2030, and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal Nr. 4 (Quality Education for All).
“We are pleased to partner with the County Government of Bungoma to bring digital learning to early childhood education and to help improve learning outcomes drastically. This initiative aligns with our commitment to making quality education accessible to all. We look forward to witnessing the positive impact this partnership will have in Bungoma,” said EIDU’s Managing Director, Dr. Max Dohna.
The initiative is aimed at modernizing the education system and ensuring that students have access to the latest educational tools and resources.
Learners and teachers will use smartphones to access the EIDU School App, which is equipped with Mathematics and Language content in line with the CBC and approved by the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development.
“Through this partnership, we are taking a proactive step towards modernizing our education system and ensuring that our students have access to the latest educational tools and resources,” said Bungoma County Executive Member for Education, Dr. David Wanyonyi Wamamili.
