The government is scaling up the rural electrification programme in Buhera Central to activate technological development.

The world is now a theatre technology and it demands personnel that are relevant especially teachers who can relate to the needs of the new education curriculum which hinges on proficiency in information communication technologies (ICT).

These were the words of Buhera Central legislator, Cde Ronald Muderedzwa during a graduation ceremony of more than 262 teachers who underwent an intensive four day training in basic ICT skills at Nyashanu Mission High School.

Cde Muderedzwa applauded the visionary leadership of President Robert Mugabe for spearheading the ongoing computerisation programme and rural electrification programme which has transformed the rural learning environment.

The new education curriculum has positioned the country on a vibrant ICT path and teachers must fight and cope with the demands of the technological era noted the national president of the Teachers Union of Zimbabwe, Mr Timon Tandi.

The Teachers Union of Zimbabwe has been entrusted to train teachers in basic ICT skills to impart information in line with the demands of the new education curriculum and more than 1000 teachers have so far been trained countrywide.
