ICT education from primary level in near future: Joy


PV Desk : Prime Minister’s ICT Affairs Adviser Sajeeb Wazed Joy today said information and communication technology (ICT) education will be introduced from the primary level in near future.

“Computer training is now being given from class VI. Hopefully the ICT education can be introduced from the primary level in next few years aimed at building skilled manpower,” he said while presenting the keynote paper at the ministerial conference on the second day of 4-day mega event ‘Digital World- 2017’ at the Bangabandhu International Conference Centre (BICC).

Joy, also grandson of Father of Nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and son of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, said the text of ICT education at the primary level would be made easier for the kids.

He said Bangladesh does not want to remain as a cheap-wage labour exporting country rather it wants to be a technology exporting one.

“It is high time for us to talk about fourth industrial revolution as the rapidly changing technology has been bringing radical change to every part of human life resulting quick economic growth and industrialization,” he also said.
