The world is now run by technology and only the digitally compliant will survive in the education sector even at elementary level.

Therefore, it is only expected that Nigerian teachers should be digitally literate to be respected for their profession.

The Chief Executive, Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Professor Olusegun Ajiboye, knows the danger ahead if they fail to heed this advice.

He warned them recently in Ibadan at the Capacity Building Training on Digital Literacy for Nigerian Teachers at the Basic and Post Basic Level.

The training held at The Polytechnic, Ibadan with 100 teachers from ten states receiving the training.

Ajiboye regretted that the council realized some deficit of skills while administering professional qualifying examinations to Nigerian teachers.

He warned that teachers must be able to utilize the opportunities provided for them by digital technology to boost their rating.

“The digitally compliant teacher can work anywhere in the world. We have to be digitally savvy. In today’s world it is a requirement to be digitally literate in order to be able to function in a capacity that enables one to be more successful whether it is at home, school, at work or even looking for a job," he said.

The burden, however, is not only on the teachers, he added that Teachers Career Progression Policy was being prepared by the Council, which will help provide better welfare for Nigerian teachers.
