Learning Online and offline from home: Just days after President Uhuru announced the suspension of learning in all schools in Kenya, KICD has put up measures to ensure that students can continue learning from their homes.
A statement shared by the Kenya Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) provides some of the means through which students can use to learn online and offline from their homes.
Learning from Home
Some of the mediums through which students can use to learn from home as provided by KICD and emphasized by the Ministry of Education include;
- Radio: The institute advised learners to tune to KBC radio station (English) from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm for radio lessons which cover primary and secondary curriculum.
- Television: Learners have also been advised to tune in to KICD’s EDU TV Channel.
- Youtube: @edutvkenya on YouTube for primary and secondary TV programmes. This means that learners from Grade Three to Form Four will access lessons for up to eight hours through radio and television every day.
- Website: KICD further recommended learners and teachers to login to www.kec.ac.ke to access digital content and teachers’ orientation courses.
KICD acting Chief Executive Officer Joel Mabonga said that the move was to ensure that learners are not left behind in learning as the country as they await re-opening.
Schools will remain closed until further notice.
