Why Greatmike Digital Foundation?
After critical research in software engineering studies and web development, the reality remains that it is very difficult to study and understand digital skills from regular schooling. Because of this, we find lots of student of which after graduation, completely lack the digital know how. Part of the blame can be giving to the schools as well as the students.
Maybe the student don’t truly understand that acquiring digital skill is very difficult and requires far more than learning, reading and passing exams. Digital skills requires constant practice less all you will acquire is empty speeches. Students must understand learning today is more personal than conventional. So relying completely on a conventional system of schooling in order to master a digital skill is a very big mistake.
On the other hand, part of the blame might be put on the current method of learning especially in our African schools. Learning in certificate focused instead of being job oriented. Its time to abandon the theoretical manner of learning which include memorizing theories and procedure to memorize and validate exam courses. Everyone can readily access such theories and procedure online. The major concern is about the applications. Students should be given more time to focused on practical work than theories. Unnecessary subjects should be eliminated. If that is done there shall be enough time for teachers to practice with students of subjects that matters the most.
