MultiChoice Nigeria, the nation's leading pay television destination, has announced plans to roll out more MultiChoice Resource Center (MRC) in public schools across the country.
The Center, which is an audio-visual teaching and learning aid for teachers and students in Secondary Schools, is a Corporate Social Initiative (CSI) of MultiChoice Nigeria in partnership with MultiChoice Africa aimed at empowering teachers and students with skills in information and communication technologies (ICTs).
The MRC project is designed for beneficiary public schools to have access to MultiChoice Education Bouquet with a view of integrating the programmes into their curriculum in order to enhance the teaching and learning processes in their schools and with over seven channels on the bouquet, teachers and students have attested that the facility has made learning and teaching easy.
The MRC project does not end with the installation of the facility in the schools. MultiChoice takes the project a step further by training teachers who man the facility. In September 2011, MultiChoice Nigeria in collaboration with SchoolNet Nigeria organized a- three day training workshop for over 25 teachers from Nigeria and a Sierra Leonean teacher, Mr. Albert Kamara on the use of the MultiChoice Resource Center in class room teaching/ learning at Ansar-ud-een Girls College, Iteri, Surulere, Lagos State.
Since the commencement of the MRC in 2004, MultiChoice has proudly trained over five thousand teachers across the country on the use of the learning aid and has spent over N150 million in training of teachers alone.
