1,360 digital publications approved for e-learning in Kenyan schools
The Kenya Institute of Curriculum Development (KICD) has approved a total of 1,360 publications in digital formats – material that will be made available to learners through the Digital Learning Programme.
Speaking during a publishers and digital content creator’s conference on standards for the online curriculum, the Kenya Publishers Association (KPA) chairman David Waweru said that 1,091 supplementary story books and text books in the online Orange Book are ready for lower primary learners.
The Orange Book is the official list of textbooks approved for use in primary and secondary schools.
The primary learners will be the first beneficiaries of the Digital Learning Programme, and the program will, in time, be scaled up to secondary school learners.
Waweru has added that the digital curriculum will expand the space and broaden learners’ choices by offering a wide range of options.
