5 Ways Eneza Education Is Useful for Teachers

There is a big conversation on Technology in Education going on across the African continent at the moment. Economies are waking up to the reality that Edtech is no longer inevitable. The lap top story has been widely publicized in Kenya’s political arena, the implementation though has been a hard rock to crack. Rwanda is the only African country that has successfully rolled out free laptops to schools.

Students only need to dial *291# to register for the service that costs Ksh 30 per month for unlimited usage of the platform.

Every teacher should utilize this service to identify on student weak areas and improve on them. We outline some of the ways below.
