Transforming education through digitization

Digitization has become an integral part of our lives. Its role has even grown amid persistent concerns about COVID-19, so various sectors, including education, have had to rethink and adapt new ways of doing things.
The digital transformation of the education sector in Ghana has seen a key development, especially during the lockdown period where steps were taken to implement distance learning for home students. This represents a major shift in the teaching and learning experience for many students due to their familiarity with traditional face-to-face classroom sessions.

The concept of traditional education is changing in recent years. The pandemic has tested how knowledge might be affected. Could the shift to online learning be the catalyst to create a more effective method of educating students?
The world is changing and we are entering a new era with the rise of educational technologies designed to enhance learning and the teaching experience. One of these innovative technologies is the school management system.

School management systems and how they work

A school management system is the best solution for managing day-to-day school operations. It simply allows schools to manage administration, schedule, enrollment, admissions, attendance, student information, homework and more.

It functions as a centralized web platform that connects parents, teachers, students and other school authorities. Indeed, there are many benefits to be gained from operating with a school management system.

Why does a school need a school management system?

There are many compelling characteristics that a school can gain from operating with this system, other than the fact that we are in a technological and super connected world.

The software plays the role of reducing the old manual administrative task by making it easier and more efficient. It also provides real-time information to users – students, parents, teachers and administrators.

For example, the online platform allows teachers to insert data regarding student grades and absences, share learning materials and contact parents directly. Students can also connect with teachers, as well as upload assignments. Students absent from class can still access daily lessons and assigned homework.

The great thing about such software is that it trains parents no matter how busy they are. Parents access the platform directly to see their children’s progress and learning without having to wait until the end of the term or during occasional parent meetings.

If your child is absent from class, you will be able to see them instantly. It helps parents control their children’s attendance and homework delivery. For this reason, parents on the go can have peace of mind as they can effectively fulfill their parenting roles at any time with little to no pressure associated with traditional school physical activities.

Due to the huge benefits listed above, many African countries are also turning to adapting school management software. For example, Nigeria has seen more than 400 schools use such platforms to improve the effectiveness of teaching and learning. Uganda has also implemented prestigious software that is gaining weight and transforming the education sector there, few African countries are making the mark with school management software.

These and many more are the essential features and benefits of using a school management system.

Why choose eKool School Management System?

One of the main providers of a school management system is eKool (meaning “e-school”) from Estonia. eKool was established in 2002, as an innovative information portal connecting parents, students, teachers and school administrators. It was designed to make lessons and homework easily accessible to students, facilitate the work of teachers and school administration and involve parents in the educational process.

eKool has helped to help Estonia become one of the best in the world of education. The country ranks # 1 in mathematics in Europe and # 8 in the world, # 1 in natural sciences in Europe and # 4 in the world and # 1 in reading in Europe and # 5 in the world.

The platform has an impressive track record of improving communication between teacher, student and parents, effective time management of teachers’ school activities; 50% reduction in student absenteeism in 5 years, significant drop in student dropouts, significant parental involvement in school processes and 50% reduction in administrative work for teachers.

eKool continues to have an impact in every country where it operates. The Estonian government development program is funding the expansion of the eKool school management system as part of its private sector development initiative to other markets such as Ghana.

The path to follow

There is no doubt that a school management system is an essential need for every school to function. He holds so many crucial functions to keep the school running smoothly.

If you are a school and are considering a management system that can adapt to your school’s operations, your school can be signed up for a free trial to see how the eKool system works. Visit signup.ekool.com.gh/ to provide your details and you will be contacted for next steps or call 0208138099 or 0553400663 for more information.

As Soa just mentioned, a CLIMBING REALITY IS SETTING OUT here in the country, with the NUMBER of daily infections and critically ill patients REACHING NEW HEIGHTS.
To find out more, I have Choi Min-jung here in the studio.
Min-jung welcome.

Thanks for having me, Sunny.

Now, given the latest developments, I hear authorities are looking at IMPROVING current countermeasures and also EXPANDING some prevention guidelines?

It’s true Sunny. In fact, Korea’s special committee on pandemic recovery held its fourth meeting earlier today.

The committee headed by Prime Minister Kim Boo-kyum assessed the current situation and discussed ways to tackle the resurgence.
The prime minister said it may be necessary to roll back anti-virus measures and stressed the need for a more resilient healthcare system.
He said this would lead to wider adoption of home treatment, especially with medical centers in the capital region approaching full capacity.

The authorities are also planning to strengthen their prevention guidelines.
Due to concerns about diminished immunity, the government may allow vaccine passes to be valid for approximately 6 months after full vaccination.
It is also likely that vaccine pass requirements will be expanded to include restaurants and cafes.
At this time, passes are not required for these locations.
Another planned change is the issuance of vaccine passes for those under 18.
As infections among adolescents increase, places popular with students, such as singing rooms, may also begin to require it for younger people.

Due to this increase in infections among adolescents … and worsening COVID-19 indices, … Education Minister Yoo Eun-hae held an emergency meeting with virus experts on Thursday. She expressed concerns about the increased risk of infection for students due to recent numbers and the recent full reopening of schools. The Education Ministry has stepped up prevention guidelines in schools and sent more staff, including for preemptive PCR testing,… but said there was a limit to what such measures can do.

“In order to bridge the educational gap that has arisen due to distance learning,… and to ensure safety in schools and a sense of normalcy for our children,… I ask students and parents to participate to our vaccination campaign,… which is the most effective prevention method.

– second suneung ended safely, no cluster infections reported so far

Besides adolescents, older people who received vaccines earlier than the rest of the population are also at risk.
What options do they have to better protect themselves?

Well, authorities have stressed the need for booster shots.

In the past two weeks, breakthrough infections accounted for 80% of all cases in people aged 60 and over.
The Korean Medical Association said on Wednesday that booster injections are needed because antibody levels can erode in older people who received their injections several months ago.

Meanwhile, Minjung, we got some sad news Wednesday night about Korea’s first FETAL death from COVID-19?

That’s right. A 26-week-old fetus has died from maternal-transmitted COVID-19 infection.

The pregnant woman in question contracted COVID-19 last week, and in just four days she miscarried.
Authorities say the mother was not vaccinated and the fetus subsequently tested positive.
It is not yet clear whether the cause of death is linked to COVID and how the fetus became infected.
Pregnant women with COVID-19 were nearly twice as likely to have stillbirths as their healthy counterparts, according to research by the US CDC.
Considering the risks, medical experts also recommend that pregnant women get vaccinated.

Min-jung right.
Thanks for now.

EDMONTON –

Four business accelerators come to Alberta to provide local tech startups with education, mentorship, networking opportunities and access to capital.

Maintaining business accelerators is part of the province’s goal of creating 20,000 jobs and increasing tech company revenues to $ 5 billion by 2030.

A consortium led by Alberta Innovates, called the Alberta Scaleup and Growth Accelerator Program, is spending $ 35 million over three years on accelerators.

500 Global is a venture capital firm that invests in fast growing technology companies. According to the provincial government, its portfolio consists of 33 companies valued at over $ 1 billion and 120 companies valued at over $ 100 million.

The second accelerator, the Alberta Pre-Accelerator, is a partnership between Platform Calgary and Innovate Edmonton. It will offer business support and advice to entrepreneurs, with “special attention” to recruiting coaches and mentors who reflect Alberta’s diversity, according to the government.

The Community Safety and Wellbeing Accelerator is aimed at growing businesses in the community safety and wellbeing space through artificial intelligence and machine learning. The program, through the Alchemist Global Accelerator, will work with the Edmonton Police Foundation.

Plug and Play Alberta’s goal is to address global energy and natural resource challenges by combining ideas from different sectors and countries.

The consortium supporting the accelerators includes not only Schweitzer’s ministry, but also Opportunity Calgary Investment Fund and Prairies Economic Development Canada.

Earlier this fall, Roger Katz, current administrator of the University of Maine’s system board and former state senator and mayor, visited the University of Maine at Augusta.

He was invited by WBU Acting President Joseph Szakas to view the renovated lettering on the exterior of the Bennett D. Katz Library, named in 1999 in honor of Katz’s father. Refreshing the lettering on the facade of the building is part of several improvements undertaken at Augusta Campus in recent months.

While on campus, Katz toured the latest updates to the Katz Building and Randall Student Center with Szakas and Jonathan Henry, VP of Enrollment Management and Marketing.

The visit also allowed Katz and WBU officials to examine archived photos of the Katz family and to recall the establishment of WBU and the 1999 inauguration ceremony of the Bennett D. Katz Library.

The original building that houses the library was completed in 1974. A major addition in 1988 included new interactive television studios and the statewide ITV system control center, as well as a new wing from the library. The facility now also includes a state-of-the-art recording studio associated with WBU’s premier jazz and contemporary music program.

In 1999, the library was officially dedicated and named in honor of Bennett Katz, lawmaker, local businessman and founder of the University of Maine at Augusta. His contributions to the development of the university – while he was a state senator, chairman of the Joint Legislative Education Committee, and system administrator at the University of Maine – served as the basis for this decision.

The Katz Library collection focuses on the academic programs offered by UMA and has become an effective tool of study and research for the UMA community. The collection is developed in collaboration with the faculty of UMA. Accordingly, it represents the research and study needs of students and its academic programs.

His announcement came during the periodic meeting of the Supreme Council of Universities he chaired at the headquarters of Helwan University, attended by Minister of Education and Technical Education Tarek Shawky, and members of the council.

The minister praised efforts by universities to prevent faculty members, students and workers from entering the university campus until they can prove they have been vaccinated or have a PCR scan be presented weekly, to ensure the safety of all members of the University community.

Abdel-Ghaffar stressed that all university presidents must continue to monitor the implementation of the integrated plan for immunization of faculty members, support staff, employees and students.

He also added that all medical staff should continue to work at full capacity in coordination with college and youth protection departments at all vaccination points within universities that have the necessary quantities of COVID-19 vaccine. .

Abdel-Ghaffar insisted on the speed of vaccinations for all students under the age of 18, especially after providing the Pfizer vaccine in the required quantities – carried out in cooperation with health departments across the country.

He further ordered that all teaching hospitals remain ready to deal with any development related to the coronavirus.

The Education Ministry said any teacher who has not yet received the vaccine will take full responsibility for it and the necessary legal action will be taken against them.

He said letters are sent periodically to the education directorates in the governorates to warn teachers and administrators who have not received the vaccine that they must get it by the specified dates.

RAWALPINDI: Punjab’s Agriculture Minister Syed Hussain Jahania Gardezi said on Monday that education-based research actually plays the most important role in determining the direction of the agricultural sector.

Gardezi expressed these views while addressing the audience at the inaugural Silver Jubilee Week session being held here at the University of Arid Agriculture.

Mr. Gardezi said the 25-year journey of Rawalpindi University of Arid Agriculture is highly commendable.

“The university has rendered invaluable services in the field of agricultural education and research. Graduates from the same university render valuable services in various institutions across the country, ”he added.

The minister said that the University of Arid Agriculture has also been instrumental in bringing hydroponics technology to the country as research projects on high-value crops are underway.

“This will contribute to the modern development of agriculture in the region in the future. The students of this university are involved in the 2021-22 Rabi crop production campaigns including wheat cultivation and, in this regard, educate farmers on the latest Rabi crop production technologies, ”he added. .

Hussain Jahania Gardezi added that unfortunately in the past there was no emphasis on agricultural education and research.

On this occasion, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Arid Agriculture, Rawalpindi, Dr Qamar Zaman said that there are currently six faculties working in this university and the total number of students in this institution is more than 12,000.

The Supreme Court is adamant about his stance on Prince Jaibir Singh, 17, that he is given a seat at IIT this year. On hearing the petition filed by the student from Ghaziabad, the Supreme Court did not agree to be informed by the IIT authorities that there were no vacant seats available. “There will be a court order against you and then it will be a problem for you. You have to understand the reality of our social life,” said Judge DY Chandrachud. The two-judge bench, which also includes Judge AS Bopanna, called on authorities to “create a seat” for the Dalit student who lost his seat at IIT Bombay due to a technical problem with the payment of fees. costs.

Prince, who had previously had his appeal dismissed by the Bombay High Court for failing to seek redress within the deadline, found strong support in the Supreme Court, where judges said: “Often seats become vacant . You can adjust it there. Please tell the president that the student cannot be left out, he is a Dalit boy and he did not have the money. You have to understand the realities of what is happening. happening in the field, find a way out.

During last week’s hearing, the court called the student merit and deemed the case important enough to force him to “rise above the law.” “He’s a Dalit boy who missed a spot without fail on his part. He passed an IIT exam and was about to be admitted to IIT Bombay. How many of these kids are able to do it? sometimes the court must rise above the law, ”the magistrate said.

The online Joint Seat Allocation Authority, or the JoSAA Council after JEE-Advanced this year, requires students to confirm their assigned merit seat by paying the admission fee. On October 29, the student, who achieved a rank of 864 in the scheduled castes on the IIT-Advanced exam, attempted to pay the seat acceptance fee on the official website, but his credit card did not work. simply not. And the moment his sister transferred the money to him to complete the transaction, he found, to his horror, that time was up and the seat was no longer available.

Prince’s appeals to IIT authorities via appeals and emails went unanswered, prompting him to file an application with the Bombay High Court.

The case was postponed until later today and the judges have meanwhile called on the authorities to speak with the student.

Written by:

Arwyn Watkins OBE

Managing Director of Cambrian Training Company

President of the Culinary Association of Wales

Most people are now aware of the recruitment crisis in several sectors of the economy, both here in Wales and across the UK.

The shortage of truck drivers has been in the headlines lately, but the hospitality industry was grappling with a decrease in the number of employees even before the Covid-19 pandemic blocked the UK.

I have a passion for the hospitality industry, which is understandable since I started my career as an apprentice cook in the military. Earlier this year, Cambrian Training Company made the bold decision to open Chartists 1770 at The Trewythen, a seven-room restaurant in the historic market town of Llanidloes, in central Wales. The new company employs 16 full-time and part-time people, including six apprentices.

From my personal experience and speaking with hotel companies we work with across Wales, I am well aware of the difficulty in recruiting staff. Let me say at the outset that there is no easy solution to this recruitment crisis.

For too many years hotel companies and other sectors of the economy have been too dependent on workers in European countries. Now, due to Brexit and the impact of the pandemic, these economic migrants are no longer available to businesses.

I think the long term solution lies in the compulsory education system here in Wales and across the UK. For more than a decade, the workplace learning sector in Wales has campaigned for apprenticeships to be on par with diplomas. But our words fell on deaf years.

Our education system currently encourages the most talented and productive children to aspire to attend college, while apprenticeship is often seen as a second option. As a result, many talented young people go to university and obtain degrees unrelated to the needs of the economy. This must change so that our education system, from elementary school on, is linked to the future needs of our economy.

How are children currently made aware of opportunities in the hospitality industry and other sectors? The answer is they are not and that needs to change. As in industry, we must be allowed to hire children from primary school age.

Economy Minister Vaughan Gething said we must do everything possible to keep our children in Wales, but our education system does the exact opposite. We export our talent to universities outside Wales and how many return to work here? There is a drain in human resources.

This policy could have been good in the past because there were other options available to businesses in the form of economic migrants. This option no longer exists.

Every hotel business needs to have a conversation with its politicians, both in Wales and across the UK. We cannot continue to operate in an economy where 50 percent of our most talented individuals are encouraged to pursue higher education, excluding them from the workforce for at least three years.

Changing this system is not going to win votes, but meeting the needs of the economy is far more important to the country than votes. The UK and Welsh governments can start by educating children about the rewarding career opportunities available in the hospitality industry, which unfortunately is not held in the same esteem here as in other European countries.

There is no manpower crossing the hill to save us. In the long run, we need to learn how to attract people to the hospitality industry, how to treat them when they’re in our businesses, and how to value and retain them.

We also need to learn to engage with our local communities, as our workforce of tomorrow will come from within our communities, not from outside. It is high time that those of us who work in industry or who love the industry began to value the careers that are made there for our own children. Unfortunately, there are currently not enough people who see hospitality as a rewarding career, a perception that we need to change in the industry.

Companies need to take a long look at themselves to analyze whether they are doing everything possible to create the right work environment for their people. If a person chooses to stay in Wales to develop their career, we have a duty as employers to create opportunities for them.

The world has changed since the start of the pandemic and employees now naturally expect a good work-life balance. The industry must respond by creating opportunities for flexible working hours, which many companies are already doing.

However, we cannot avoid the harsh reality that some employers have suffered reputational damage in their local community because of the way they have treated their employees. It’s not something that can be fixed overnight, but these employers need to change the way they operate or exit the industry. The hospitality industry is a unique industry which is extremely important to Wales and has proven itself over the past 18 months.

I have spoken at length about the need for change which will entail costs. Will consumers be prepared to pay more for hospitality services in the future, an inevitable consequence of rising costs of food, labor, fuel and taxes?

At the end of the day, the consumer is going to have to pay more for everything. Will this become the breaking point for declining occupancy rates, making businesses financially unviable with fewer jobs, fewer taxes for the Exchequer and more unemployed? Only time will tell.

Until now, we have not exploited to the maximum our old wealth (spices)

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The Ministry of Education, Culture, Research and Technology encourages further research or better understanding of spices in the service of health.

“Not just medicine, for beauty, for food recipes, and that’s what we haven’t explored further. We hope that the role of doctors through PDPOTJI (Association of Developers of Traditional Indonesian Medicine and herbal medicine) will be strategic in the future, “Fitra Arda, secretary of the Ministry of the General Directorate of Culture, said.

The Indonesian people have always known the benefits of using plants from root to leaf. This knowledge has been transmitted from generation to generation through texts and oral traditions, according to him. He made the statement during a webinar titled “Reliving the Glory of Indonesian Spices and the Role of Doctors in the Past, Present and Future” held on Saturday.
