Ogun State Traims 200 Trained In Python Programming Language by OmoOgunOriginal(f): 10:11pm On May 02
No fewer than 2000 Ogun State Public School Teachers have benefitted from one day training on Python Programming and Artificial Intelligence across the three Senatorial Districts of the State.

The programming is an aspect of Information Communication Technology (ICT), that is demonstrated by the machines in contrast to those by human beings.

The event, which was co-organised by the Bureau of Information Technology, in collaboration with Data Science Nigeria (DSN), Lead Resources, Computer Teachers Association of Nigeria (CTAN) and Nigeria Computer Society (NCS), at Hubert Ogunde Hall, Kuto, Abeokuta, would broaden knowledge of participants on Information Communication Technology (ICT).

While addressing journalists at the venue, the Director of Information Technology in the Bureau, Mrs. Olatundun Adekunte stated that the training was part of the conscious efforts of State government at transforming the secondary school teaching into a Digitally-Smart workforce.

Adekunte, in a statement signed by the Bureau’s Information Officer, Mrs. Tokunbo Jaiyeola, said, “Since it is generally accepted that no educational system can rise above the standard of its teachers, the State is totally committed to addressing the digital inadequacies of public school teachers, who are critical to the realisation of the present administration’s ‘Building Our Future Together’ agenda.

She noted that it was imperative to train and retrain the teachers, especially in the area of Information Technology, adding that the present administration is passionate in imbibing ICT on students, in order to prepare them for global competition.

“Indeed, we are in 21 century, where people are dealing with ICT, there will be no need for our teeming youths to be searching for jobs anymore, once they have trained digitally. That is why we need to prepare them for the future, because of its demand in the global economy”, Adekunte said

One of the instructors and the Business Manager, DSN, Mr. Amzat Olawasheun said it was a foundation for the primary and secondary school teachers in the State, to make them compete favourably in the area of Python programme and Artificial Intelligence.

Oluwasheun pointed out that teachers need to be adequately equipped and educated on Information Technology, to prepare the upcoming generations for the future challenges, noting that those programmings would be introduced into the primary and secondary school curriculum.

“This is basic foundation for our teachers in the State to develop their intelligence and broaden their knowledge in the area of programmings, to inculcate what they are taught here to their pupils and the world as well”, she said.

In his contribution, the Third Executive President, Computer Teachers Association of Nigeria (CTAN), Mr. Emosu Temitopeoluwa, stated that it is important to “catch them young” and implant such critical programmes into their minds, so as to become employers of labour in the nearest future.

“Indeed, Python Programmings is very essential, as at now, we cannot do anything special on IT without having knowledge of it. It is a new innovation we all need to vast at, so, our students need to be taught now, as they are still young to assimilate “, Temitopeoluwa said.

Some of the participants, Mr. Elemide Florence of Idiko Gateway Senior Secondary School, Idiroko, Ipokia Local Government and Mrs. Sofowote Rasheedat of Wesley Primary School, Iperu-Remo, opined that the programme was for beginners/starters, to develop their skills in the area of programmings on ICT, commending the State government for facilitating such training workshop for both primary and secondary school teachers.

This is a Very Good and Welcome development.

Python Programmings is very essential, as at now,
We cannot do anything special on IT without having knowledge of it.

Slow and steady we will get to the country of our dreams.

God bless Ogun State.

They should have gone with JavaScript or PHP. If you aren't sound in mathematics and statistics and wanna venture into machine learning or data science, it would be severe pains for you.

If you wanna learn python for Web development say Django or Flask, sorry for you cos these are dying technologies (I was a professional Flask developer before I moved on).

I hope they taught them algorithms and how to solve problems in programming too. You don't just learn the syntax of a programming language and start disturbing others that you are now a programmer.

False!

Python is still a hot cake last time I checked.

In as much as it fading out, it will still ball.

Like they said sometimes that GSM will fade out and it's still ballin even with the arrival of 5G. Infrastructural languages don't fade out like that.

The carburetor engine has not faded out. Manual transmission in automobile still hasn't faded. This are just speculations that will materialize in decades to come.

And moreover, it will transit many to other languages.
