LCCI President restates commitment to knowledge-driven economy

The Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has restated its commitment  to human capacity development in tandem with a knowledge-driven economy.
The disclosure was made by Its President, Toki Mabogunje during the presentation of four 3D printers to some tertiary institutions in Lagos.
Mabogunge said that the major aim is to  improve the students’ learning process as a way of advancing the educational sector.
She added that  benefits offered by 3D printing to the educational sector made them present the facilities to the respective institutions.
Acccording to her, it would bring out the best in the students and make them innovative.
“The growth of 3D printing in Nigeria is expected to impact, not only on manufacturing but also on the education sector.
“This technology brings to light a set of skills lacking in the Nigerian industrial setting, and the opportunity for new teaching practices in science and engineering programmes within our tertiary institutions.
“The emergence of 3D printing technology has the potential to transform businesses, geographical challenges, and entire supply chains.”
“Awareness has been created on the value of 3D technology at this critical stage of the Nigerian economy and the roles it can play in all sectors of the Nigerian economy.
“In the educational sector, 3D printing offers numerous benefits. These benefits include improving students’ learning process as well as improving teaching capabilities of the teacher. Hence, the need to deploy 3D printing,” she said.
Speaking, the Managing Director, Kawai Technologies Limited, Otunba Akinbowale Akin-Olugbade, noted that 3D printing technology is very vital to advancing manufacturing and producing, globally.
“Research shows that a boring learning environment has a more powerful thinning effect on the brain cortex than what an exciting or engaging environment does.
“One way to increase learning engagement is by introducing 3D printers into a classroom with which students can follow a project-based learning approach.
