Full Text PDF

Abstract:

Computer education is one of the main keys to economic development and improvements in human welfare. As global economic competition grows sharper, Computer education becomes an important source of competitive advantage, closely linked to economic growth, and a way for countries to attract jobs and investment. In addition, Computer education appears to be one of the key determinants of lifetime earnings. Countries therefore frequently see raising Computer educational attainment as a way of tackling poverty and deprivation. In developing countries, Computer education is also linked to a whole batch of indicators of human development. The experience of Nigerian economies in particular in the past two decades has demonstrated the benefits that public investment in Computer education can bring. The responsibility of this paper therefore, is to discuss the integration Computer education in teacher education for capacity building and sustainable development. Areas of concern are integration of Computer education in teacher education for capacity building and sustainable development, challenges of Computer education in teacher education, and approaches to Computer education integration. The paper concludes and recommends how to build human resources that will build the nation and bring sustainable development Computer education must be integrated into teacher education and Computer education should be a compulsory subject or course for all students in teacher training institutions.
