Catch Them Young: a Learning Value for Computer-Based Instruction for Universal Basic Education (UBE) in Nigeria


The fundamental principle of Universal Basic Education (UBE) in Nigeria is that everybody must have access to equivalent education comprehensively and co-educationally. The concept of the Universal Primary Education (UPE) introduced in 1976 (6 years education), was to change into Basic Education (9 years education) twenty three years later. Basic Education is not completely new but its meaning has been broadened after the World declaration on Education for All (EFA), and the Framework for Action to meet Basic learning needs. The purpose of this write-up is to see the effect of computer-based learning on the initial years of primary school of UBE, to cover its value and determine effective ways of its implementation.
