At a meeting at State House Nairobi, Prof. Education Cabinet Secretary Prof. Jacob Kaimenyi said the Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) has finalized development of the digital content, which is ready for uploading to the laptops.
He said ICT Teacher Training Curriculum was launched last month and the ICT Integration Manual for trainers is ready. Prof. Kaimenyi said the Ministry of Education in collaboration with the Ministry of Energy and Petroleum is finalizing a need assessment to facilitate powering of the schools.
Prof. Kaimenyi added that stakeholders have been sensitized on the Laptop Programme implementation strategy.
President Kenyatta said he wanted to see the Ministry advance with speed to ensure the programme is implemented on schedule.
“We have to fast-track implementation of this programme to equip our children with the requisite technological skills at an early age. This will enable them to compete favourably with their peers at the global arena,” President Kenyatta said.
The President said the Laptop Programme is one of the Jubilee Coalition’s priority programmes that will transform the country’s education sector.
