p style="text-align: justify;">The Director-General, Office of the Education Quality Assurance, Lagos State, Mrs Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, has said the newly unveiled online community learning intervention platform, ‘Lagos Learns Together,’ will revolutionise learning in the state.

<

p style="text-align: justify;">Seriki-Ayeni made this known on Thursday during the unveiling of LLT at the Lagos SUBEB Multipurpose Hall, Lagos.

p style="text-align: justify;">According to her, the educational material is for the students from primary school to SSS 3 and are both digital and physical so that technology will not be a barrier to accessing education.

<

p style="text-align: justify;">“It was borne out of the need for a centralised educational and information access targeted at pre-class to SSS 3 students, teachers, school leaders and parents.  The different resource on the website is to support both public and private schools especially for students with access to devices. The resources are also free-of-charge and designed to meet the needs of Nigerian students, educators, and families. Since we have a responsibility to our community, the LLT will further help to bridge learning gaps for students below tertiary level as the world strives with a spike in COVID-19 pandemic.”

The learning packs include important information about the safety of a child especially as COVID-19 has spiked again, such as sexual abuse, kidnapping, fire incidence and phone number(s) or code(s) to call in any situation. Included in the learning pack is the ‘COVID-19 Education Handbook for Children’ by the United Nation and the European Union in conjunction with the Lagos State Government.”
