ENHANCING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TEACHERS IN THE CLASSROOM: THE MAKARANTA.NG SOLUTION

At the Orderly Society Trust (OST), our focus for the last four years has been to increase access to high-quality education through the re-engineering of the learning process by providing requisite skills, pedagogical knowledge, content and educational resources for competency growth in teachers. We are committed to putting in place a system that can provide teachers with an array of planning, organisational, instructional and assessments skills that help them be more effective in their classrooms.

The application is currently being used in our pre-school classes in two public schools in Lagos namely Opebi public primary school and Anglican primary school Makoko. Five teachers are using the application to access instructional and educational resources to for

competency growth of over 100 pupils in their numeracy and literacy classes. The application is also being used in Ogba and Anglican primary schools, where the reading instructors are using the application to access content for their classroom and monitor the progress being made in the reading skills of over 1000 pupils.
