According to Wikipedia, a blog is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web, it consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries. Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, this cause the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page. With the above simple description of what a blog is, Akanne Blog is written in simple terms.
Akanne Blog is an element of Akanne Technologies housed in Akanne Academy with Akanne Courses. The blog teaches educational technology (edtech for short) – different method of applying technology in teaching. Technology in the 21st century has fast grown to the extent that we apply technology in almost every thing we do. And we now cannot do without it. Education sector has cut some portion of technology application, teachers are yet to understand how to apply technology in their daily teaching and learning. In Nigeria and many other developing country, technology application in classroom has a very low usage. This may be due to lack of awareness, we have taken this as a project to help teachers across West Africa and Nigeria in particular on how to adopt technology in their career.
Technology can be applied in almost all works of life like from education to engineering, business, finance, health, aviation, agriculture, broadcasting, military and what have you. We have considered to niche our tech blog to education in an attempt to help government and other organisation to build our nation and African in general. Our blog is mostly concerned with educational technology also known as edtech or edutech for short.
Educational Technology is largely divided into two namely: technology of education and technology in education. Technology of education deals with systematic application of the resources of scientific knowledge of the processes of learning that each individual has to pass through in order to acquire and use knowledge. While technology in education refers to the use of technological hardware in education. Technology in education is not limited to making use of technology to make learning and imparting of education easier in all possible ways but also a field of study in itself for those who are involved with developing technological tools.
