LASUBEB boosts practical learning in Schools. Donates Equipment, Materials To Vocational Training Centres

by LASUBEB Publicity unit | February 2nd 2020

Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board, LASUBEB, has donated some equipment and materials to vocational training centres in all the 20 Local Government Education Authority establishments in the State towards improving the practical learning experience of students in the beneficiary schools.

The Chairman of LASUBEB, Mr. Wahab Alawiye-King, who presented the equipment and materials to the representatives of the various schools last Friday, stated that the government will continue to make provisions for necessary tools that would further aid teaching and learning in Lagos schools.

He disclosed that the government has made it an annual responsibility to provide the necessary equipment to schools across all the Local Government Education Areas of the State so that they can function effectively and impart knowledge to the pupils.

The Chairman explained that since education has three domains of cognitive (thinking), affective (emotion/feeling), and psychomotor (physical), efforts must be intensified to balance the relationship that exists among the three without focusing on one at the detriment of the other.

While saying that presentation of the materials would specifically aid practical learning among school pupils which is the psychomotor aspect of education, Alawiye-King enjoined the teachers to support pupils in their quest for practical education by giving them access to the centres for learning purposes.

In his words, "This presentation of teaching and learning materials represent the psychomotor aspect of education in which pupils have to use their head, hand and heart. In order for them to do all these effectively, they must have the necessary equipment that supports positive learning outcomes".

He maintained that as LASUBEB continues to pursue its mantra of “leaving no child behind in access to basic education”, the Board is also incorporating practical learning and development of skills as part of its curriculum to maximise the potentials of the pupils and also enable them gain practical and valuable experiences.

According to Alawiye-King, the items provided by the State government are meant to equip the Computer centres, Home Economics, Art and Craft centres, Mini Resource centres and Teachers Resource centres of about 143 schools in all the 20 Local Government Education Authority in the State.

One of the Permanent Board members of LASUBEB, Dr. Saheed Ibikunle described the gesture as a laudable initiative that is in sync with the T.H.E.M.E.S agenda of the State Government, specifically the Education and Technology pillar.

He said that the presentation of the teaching and learning materials is a follow-up to the already introduced technology into teaching and learning in the public primary schools in the State through the EkoExcel initiative.

“The donated items would serve as a way of revamping vocational centres such that school pupils could be equipped with vocational skills from their primary school levels”, Dr. Ibikunle stated.

He expressed the view that if some basic consumables are not available to support teaching and learning, the intended output would not be achieved.

Also speaking at the presentation of the materials, another Permanent member of the Board, Mrs. Sijuade Idowu-Tiamiyu urged the school administrators to put to good use, the donated items.

The Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board on Thursday, 2nd December 2021, celebrated retired Public Primary School Teachers at LASUBEB multi-purpose hall, Maryland, Ikeja.
