NIIT is a leading Global Talent Development Corporation, building skilled manpower pool for global industry requirements. The company which was set up in 1981, to help the nascent IT industry overcome its human resource challenges, has today grown to be amongst world’s leading talent development companies offering learning solutions to Individuals, Enterprises and Institutions across 40 countries.
In the emerging new economy, Information Technology is playing a crucial role. Technology has made it possible for business to be transacted over geographies seamlessly. Buyers reach suppliers without intermediaries. The fact is in today’s competitive world, an academic qualification by itself is simply not enough. And without a professional qualification the chances of getting ahead are rather bleak. It therefore means that for anyone to participate, familiarity with computers and the Internet has now become a prerequisite.
At NIIT, we have understood the importance of interactive learning and its role in helping students skyrocket to success in their careers. This has formed the basis of NIIT@School, a movement that has revolutionised classrooms and taken technology right to the grass-root level.
Our leadership status comes to light when one considers that NIIT is one and probably the only IT education company that has also made inroads into several private schools
at all three educational levels – primary, secondary and tertiary- across Nigeria. Students are imparted high quality computer courses every year, as an integral part of the school curriculum through NIIT@School.
An end-to-end teaching-learning solution from the pioneers of IT education. IT wizard aims at revolutionizing the way IT is being taught.
IT Wizard Plus is designed to create an early exposure of technology among students.
IT Wizard Plus deploys PACE methodology of learning. ‘PACE’ is built on the principles of David Kolb’s experiential learning model which means, learning through reflection on doing.
The program familiarizes the students with the various facets of technology and also nurtures their creativity through continuous exposure to various learning modules.
The program aims at making the students future-ready with relevant IT skills and exposure to technology at an early age.
IT, as a subject, cannot be taught by following a conventional route like other basal subjects. Instead, we have to make our students experience different facets of IT in schools so that they can relate it to their experiences with the technology, thus unleashing their creativity. IT Wizard Plus is based on a unique PACE methodology. This approach helps the students to understand, assimilate and practice all these concepts. It ensures that learning requirements for all types of learners like visual, kinesthetic, tactile etc. are taken care of. IT Wizard Plus encourages students to go beyond the text books and equips them with skills required for shaping their future careers. ITWizard Plus is not a curriculum or a product, but an end-to-end solution that brings all the key elements required by the teachers and their students for learning and managing IT.
