Digital tools reduces learning gaps, says official


THE increase in digital tools has reduced the education gap between the privileged and unprivileged, an official says.
Andrew Angobe, the secretary-general of the PNG National Commission for the United Nations Education, Sciences and Cultural Organisation, made the statement while announcing the nominations for 2016 King Hamad Bin Isa Al-Khalifa Prize competition in Port Moresby.
The competition is funded by the Kingdom of Bahrain. It was established in 2015 to recognise innovations and interventions to improve teaching and learning outcomes.
“This year’s nominations will be on the use of information and communication technology in education. The theme is: Use of ICT in education for disadvantaged groups,” he said.
The two prize winners will receive $US25,000 (K79200) and a diploma.
The deadline is Sept 30, 2016.
