The agreement was signed on the draft that will be followed by the implementation of the project aimed at supplying technology devices with mentioned- educative software to strengthen learning achievement in STEAM.
SAKURA-SHA K.K is Japanese- based educational software and book publishing company and has long expertise in developing educative software for interactive mathematics for primary school learners.
Although this project aims to promote technology use in schools, it will focus on primary schools in order to facilitate the teaching and learning of mathematics and science subjects. This means that through this project, the teaching, learning, and assessment of mathematics and science in primary schools will be put in the form of technology.
After signing the agreement, MUTSINZI Antoine said that mathematics is the main subject of all subjects, so he hopes to see students benefit from this project.
He said, “Mathematics is the foundation of all other subjects, so I believe our students will benefit a lot from this project. What I would ask instead is to speed up the implementation plan of the project.”
MUTSINZI Antoine, Chairman of KEFL, said that based on the good cooperation and experience from working with SAKURA-SHA K.K, there is no doubt that this project will be successfully implemented and produce the expected results.
This project will supplement Government and MINEDUC’s achievements that promote use of technology in schools for Basic education.
