KEY TAKEAWAYS


This curriculum will offer a user-friendly layout that makes teaching and learning a breeze. Moreover, this syllabus will be the first interactive coding program to be accredited by Pearson, a global education company. It is delivered to students via an interactive online studio.


According to the Information and Communication Technology Authority (ICTA), the implementation of the coding syllabus will begin in June 2022.

The Authority cited that the pilot project will include 100 public primary schools and 50 public secondary schools chosen from across the country.

ICTA, which oversees the Digital Literacy Program (DLP), further added that more than 1.2 million laptops have been distributed, and electricity and teacher devices have been connected to the over 22,000 learning institutions across the country.

According to ICTA Acting Chief Executive Officer Kipronoh Ronoh, the content provided by Kodris Africa, an Education Technology Firm, in April 2022 has already been approved by KICD as relevant. It is expected to change the lives of learners.

Mr Ronoh cited that the program is set to provide learners with 21st-century skills beginning from elementary school. This, according to him, will put learners in Kenya at the same level as learners in developed countries.

Since computer coding has become a major job skill in an increasingly digitized world, it’s imperative to include it in the syllabus to broaden learners’ minds and perspectives concerning the same.

The Laptops, tablets, and internet access provided by the ICTA, are a ladder to increase literacy among young learners as well as produce digital intellects who will be able to deal with and solve real issues in the field.
