 A Nigerian Teacher, Dr. Peter Ogudoro, has won an award by Facebook as one of the world’s amazing virtual community managers for developing a “most helpful and engaged educators’ platform called Nigerian Teachers’’.

This is contained in a media release made available by the platform, Nigerian Teachers.

The platform said that the award by Facebook makes Ogudoro a member of the multinational corporation’s elite group of 131 outstanding community managers in the world.

The platform, the statement said, focuses on online teacher-training and attitude modification, has over 240,000 teachers from around the world, and provides free continuous professional development opportunities to them.

“The platform is a peer-support community for teachers, who use the platform to follow trends in teaching, classroom management, and school leadership.

“Parents also use the platform to learn effective parenting styles that enable them to collaborate with teachers for the global competitiveness of young people.’’

Ogudoro, the platform said, created the group in 2016 as a positive response to the frustration he experienced while trying to get education policymakers in Nigeria to adopt and promote learner-centered approaches to teaching and effective career management systems.

It noted that Ogudoro’s methods could save the country billions of dollars and make Nigeria a net exporter of educational services.

Ogudoro expressed gratitude to Facebook for the Award and revealed that he was scaling up the platform to help governments around the world to train and retrain teachers for globally competitive education.

“Through globally competitive education, we can deliver the pace of development that will banish poverty, and guarantee a more inclusive, prosperous, and harmonious world.

“I am excited about the fact that a powerful tool for the promotion of functional education in the world has come from Nigeria, a country that has been facing enormous development challenges for decades.

“The award will provide me the platform for a one-month learning tour of the Scandinavian countries including Finland with a focus on their education system.

“The objective is the provision of the intellectual tools that will help Nigeria and the rest of the developing world achieve the demographic dividends they need to lift millions of their citizens out of poverty within the next few years through result-oriented pedagogy,’’ Nigerian Teachers quoted Ogudoro as saying.
