Schools and Education in Uganda

E-mail Print PDF

 

The foundation of schools and education in Uganda is basically on the arrival of missionaries in Uganda wayback in the 1870s.

The basic purpose of giving education was to the converts in the first Christian sects – Anglican and Roman Catholics.

The converts were to attend catechism classes and as a necessity ,they had to learn reading and writing.

The converts also had to be equipped with basic livelihood skills – carpentry,tailoring and the likewise,the converts also had to be looked after socially- health care and health education, adult literacy .

Now due to developments,education has developed so fast that there are levels-nursery,primary,secondary,tertiary and university.

Within all the systems above the duration differs-nursery..3 years,primary..7 years,secondary...6 years(4 years and 2 years-4 years senior one to senior four,2 years for high school-senior 5 and six)

There is a new trend now in the use of computers -IT. This has made the teaching/learning situations to be global.

Though there are basic values for school education in Uganda,the end result is to combat poverty, poor health care, and lack of adequate food among all Ugandans.

The citizens are developed towards increased literacy, greater awareness of social and health issues, improved nutrition, and greater living standards over all.

UGANDAN TEACHERS AND ITCT

E-mail Print PDF

It is early time teachers in Uganda to join the technology and shift from chalk board work,

machines like computers,projectors can do the work chalk board does better and very effective

provided the teacher using them is well equipped with all the skills necessary so allow me to join hands

and thank the ITCT Africa for all the effort ,time,money and all the materials they have put in so far to lift a Ugandan

teacher to a level of a teacher in well developed countries.when technology is invested in a teacher am sure

by the end of the day we are going to see that farmers,traders,doctors,cleaners,drivers and all other people in the whole

Uganda find using technology as the best and effective mean of doing things
