More use of technology essential in education: minister
Governments around the world including Laos have been promoting and developing digital education systems, which is now an important global issue and a key priority for the education sector.
Minister of Education and Sports, Mrs Sengdeuane Lachanthaboune, recently shared her views and experiences on the topic in relation to Laos during a video conference titled “Digital Transformation of Education Systems throughout Asean”.
She said the development and use of digital education had taken place rapidly, and varied according to the socio-economic development, readiness and capacity of each country.
In some countries, the development and use of digital technologies is advanced, but for many countries the use of digital tools in education is still in its early stages. The Covid-19 pandemic has focused government attention in many countries on the development and promotion of digital technologies in teaching and learning to ensure continuity in the delivery of education for children, and to ensure the safety of teachers and students.
