How Re:learn by CcHUB is building a classroom of the future around Technology

by | Mar 22, 2016

Following the consolidation of Co-creation Hub’s (CcHUB) education programs as Re:learn, a chat with Bosun Tijani, Co-founder/CEO of CcHUB reveals that the Re:learn Centre Abuja isn’t a replica of CcHUB Lagos. The Center will be home to kids and EdTech startups to help raise a new generation of digitally adept students that are equipped with 21st century skills necessary for building solutions to address modern challenges through a combination of projects targeted at research and learning.

Conversations around how technology and education can be fused to tackle the current challenges facing the education sector needs to start. Re:learn will be a place for kids, parents and edutech startups to come together and help create products that will revolutionise the education sector. According to Bosun, all stakeholders should start thinking about how technology and education can work together to transform the education sector, by focusing technology on the challenges faced within the education sector we will help create solutions and gather insights that will support the model classroom of the future.

The Re:learn Centre in Abuja is located within Wuse2 district to make it accessible to both rich and poor kids. It will also serve as an incubation centre for EdTech startups to use research done at Re:learn to further improve on their product offerings. Summer of Code, a 4-week program held during the holidays to introduce 5-18 year olds to computer programming, Geeks Club, an after-school computing club for secondary school students, and Maker Club are some of the programs under Re:learn by CcHUB. Re:learn will help bring these programs to Abuja to expose kids to technology and the Centre will see products like the raspberry pie being used by kids to create stuff.

Every region has it’s unique features and most times it is influenced by culture. Creating hubs all around Nigeria might not be the best answer to facilitating growth in technology but taking the challenges faced in every sector and building hubs that help develop solutions focused on tackling the challenges in every sector will not only create jobs but also help bring technology closer to every industry. If you are familiar with how the CcHUB began you will understand the model and the drive behind the Re:learn Centre. The Centre will also be used to host events and conversations that will help build a tech ecosystem in Abuja.

Today we are talking about education, next month it might be agriculture. It is obvious that technology can help improve each sector of the Nigerian economy but we need to first build capacity that will sustain each idea brought forward. Re:learn is a welcomed development but then we need more of such initiatives.
