Mostafa Jabbar, President of Bangladesh Computer Society was discussing with Monir Hussain, the General Secretary of Bangladesh Math Olympiad about ways of achieving Digital Bangladesh in a television discussion.
They stressed that computer is a tool, not a subject. This tool should be utilized to earn knowledge in every subject and in every level of education.
It would have been better if we could provide each student with a computer. As it is not possible, at least every teacher should be provided with a computer. The content and quality of the teaching would then have been changed tremendously.
With computer and internet access, the digital divide between rural and urban will be diminished.
They opined that for Digital Bangladesh, we need Digital Education. They warned that if government fails to understand this, then the dream for Digital Bangladesh would not be materialized.
