THE Zambia Telecommunications Company Limited (ZAMTEL) has asked school administrators to fully integrate some aspects of delivering lessons digitally as part of embracing the new normal.
ZAMTEL Corporate Communications Manager Changwe Kabwe says stakeholders in the education sector should not abandon digital learning for non-examination classes.
Mr Kabwe pointed out, “Learners should continue using e-learning platforms they adopted when schools were closed, even as they have returned to school.
It is critical for school administrators to fully integrate some aspects of delivering lessons digitally as part of embracing the new normal”.
He said this in a statement issued in Lusaka and made available to the Techwatch News
The Communications Manager showed that Zamtel observed the growing interest from learners to shift to digital learning as an alternative during the closure of schools which should not be allowed to die down as classes have reopened.
Zamtel launched the Smart Revision and the e-Learning portal to help bridge the learning gap created by the school closures and to popularise digital learning.
He further said the telecommunications service provider is also working on school-based subscription packages, which will allow schools to purchase subscriptions for learners.
