National ICT Innovation & Integration Centre (NI3C)
The National ICT Innovation and Integration Centre (NI3C) supported by the VVOB Kenya ICT Integration in Education programme was officially launched on the 10th August 2011 in a colourful ceremony officiated by the then Minister of Education, Prof. Dr. Sam Ongeri. Speaking during the launch, the Minister reiterated the usefulness of the centre as ‘it will not only provide education and training but it is also an innovative centre with the capacity to address technological gaps in education’.
Professor Ongeri acknowledged the importance of ICT in education terming it as a ‘language’ that can be used to teach various subjects in the classroom. He specifically cited examples of successful use of ICT in the classroom in countries such as Rwanda, Malaysia and Singapore.
