The project which started with a proof-of-concept (PoC) of just 36 selected students at the Government Junior Secondary school (JSS) Jabi in Abuja, Nigeria has spread to over a thousand schools and is currently benefiting over twenty thousand students. For the PoC, Intel provided the 36 selected students with Intel-powered classmate PCs running on windows XP, training for teachers on the Intel Teach programme, two Teacher laptops for use in classes with an interactive whiteboard, broadband internet access, curriculum based digital content from the Intel Skoools program and a repository for viewing content offline. The PoC ran for three months after which a post-implementation review revealed that the selected students showed a 30% improvement in their academic performance when measured against previous performance. This remarkable improvement in academic performance ignited a whole new era in ICT enabled programmes for education and institutionalized the 1:1 computing model as the way forward for many Nigerian schools. The PoC showed Nigerian educators the value of 1:1 e-learning for young children and provided practical lessons to guide future efforts. The project as a whole highlights the importance of comprehensive approaches that combine child-friendly mobile learning devices with wireless Internet access, locally relevant content and teachers who are skilled at using technology to enhance teaching and learning. The first of its kind in Africa, the project Read the full INTEL 1:1 E-LEARNING IN NIGERIA.
