This has left us with the options of either to swim or sink. In order not to sink, educational systems of most countries of the world began to rethink educational practices in order to remain relevant in this knowledge economy and communication technology driven age. Up to the advent of the twenty-first century, education systems around the world concentrated on training their students to simply acquire content and knowledge. Students were therefore seen as needing to learn reading and numerical skills in order to acquire content and information. But more recently, information and knowledge have become widely available and simple to obtain because of advances in technology and communication. Business education has been thought to be an instructional model that instills in its client the necessary applicable skills, talents, and competencies for independence. Even though these abilities are still vital and relevant, but are no more enough to keep degree holders employed in the volatile and competitive economy. As a result, there is a massive disparity between the information and expertise that students gain in university and those that they would need succeed in quintessential 21st century cultures and organizations. It is necessary to modify toward offering learners a set of abilities that depended not just on intellect but on all interrelatedness of mental, behavioral, and affective traits if we are to react appropriately to these contemporary innovation, target audience, and cultural transformations. In considering this, the paper examined the concepts of 21<sup>st</sup> century education, 21<sup>st</sup> century learning objectives, the concept of business education, and the communication technological skills in 21<sup>st</sup> century required of graduates. Also, conclusions and key recommendations were offered.</p> <p><em> </em></p> Daniel Osamwonyi Iyoha , Ugonwa Felicia Umeh, Zorte Nbogana Maamaa Copyright (c) 2022 Daniel Osamwonyi Iyoha , Ugonwa Felicia Umeh, Zorte Nbogana Maamaa Mon, 02 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 The Influence of IT Literacy on Lecturer performance <p>One of the factors that influence the success of an organization's business is the management of information technology (IT) infrastructure that is run well, the Information Technology Literacy as a provider of IS/IT products and services must have the ability to do so.&nbsp;This research consists of two types of research, namely correlation research which will examine the relationship between internal customer satisfaction and seven independent variables.&nbsp;Results of correlation analysis showed that there was a significant effect positive between internal customer satisfaction with seven variable quality of the products and services of IS/IT (reject H&nbsp;<sub>0&nbsp;</sub>hypothesis 1) and there is significant influence positively the quality of the products and services of IS / IT to the perception of improved performance internal customers (reject H&nbsp;<sub>0 </sub>in hypothesis 2). The average value of the satisfaction dependent variable is 3.326 and the dependent variable&nbsp;is the&nbsp;perception of increased internal customer performance: 3,430 which means that internal customers currently feel quite satisfied and feel a sufficient increase in their performance after receiving and using the IS/IT products and services provided. by the Information System Service Bureau&nbsp;at STT-PLN&nbsp;.&nbsp;The results of the Mann-Whitney analysis reject H&nbsp;<sub>0&nbsp;</sub>in hypothesis 3, in other words there are significant differences in the assessment of performance aspects between internal customers and IT personnel on the performance of the IT Literacy.&nbsp;Aspects that include: response to problems, development of IS and viruses.</p> Birru Muqdamien, Ilzamuddin Makmur, Nafan Tarihoran Copyright (c) 2023 Birru Muqdamien, Ilzamuddin Makmur, Nafan Tarihoran Mon, 02 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Mitigating Academic Institution Dropout Rates with Predictive Analytics Algorithms <p style="font-weight: 400;">Multiple studies show student dropout rates across rich, low and middle-income countries. With the development of machine learning, various learning institutions have initiated predictive analytics algorithms to solve this issue. However, there is limited knowledge on how this strategy has been employed to optimize retention rates. The research aims to comprehensively review PAAs Strategies and demonstrate how they have been effectively implemented in optimizing retention rates with a case study focusing on North America. The study employed a quantitative research methodology and thematic study design to review the existing literature. The result shows that learning institutions used a combination of data mining classifiers such as k-Nearest Neighbor, Neural Networks, Decision Tree, and Naive Bayes to categorize student dropout rates and optimize retention rates. The PAAs approach has been utilized by various educational institutions across North America, applying multiple predicting algorithms to ensure efficiency.</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;"><em>Keywords</em>: Predictive analytics algorithms, mitigating dropout rates, retention rates, classifiers, Learning institutions, North America</p> <p style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</p> Bongs Lainjo Copyright (c) 2022 Bongs Lainjo Mon, 02 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Women Liberty through Colonial Oppression: A Short Study on M. K. Gandhi and R. S. Hossain <p>The point of the current paper is to reveal insight into women's condition within Indian Subcontinent during the colonial period. The investigation will fixate on the gendered place that women had to take, and on the male developed generalizations to which they were oppressed from an Enlightenment Feminist viewpoint. Begum Rokeya brought the social condition of women into mindfulness how a lady was obliged to comply with social built biases which made of her an item; all chances for education, prospect, freedom and improvement were shut to her. When the people of colonial India could feel the independence, they could realize the essence of women education. Colonialism not only depress men but also became the key factor to trap the women into a case-house. The permission of women’s education did not come automatically, but with a long struggle and well leading campaign. Only for Hindus, Mahatma Gandhi played an imperative part to support the dignity of women folk by stating that women were neither mere figures in the hands of male nor their opponents. Begum Rokeya Sakhawat Hossain, for both Muslims and Hindus, shouted the women's consciousness and women's freedom through education could play a vital issue to strengthen the man's heart for colonial freedom. They, both, wanted women's empowerment and equality in society; at the workstation; at the community, and even at family for sustainable-development of a nation. Their activism inspired modern women gliding to economic, political and mental growth. Nowadays, women is involving in all sphere of national or international sectors in the Indian Subcontinent</p> Md. Eftekhairul Copyright (c) 2023 Md.

It is observed that teachers are not performing their duties as expected and this could be as a result of perceived poor work environment hindering effective performance of teachers’ duties. Therefore, this study examined work environment and teachers’ job performance in public primary schools in Ondo State, Nigeria. The descriptive research design of the survey type was employed. The sample consisted of 120 teachers and 20 head teachers randomly selected from 20 public primary schools in Akoko South West Local Government Area of Ondo State. Two researcher-made questionnaires entitled “Work Environment Questionnaire (WEQ)” and “Teachers’ Job Performance Questionnaire (TJPQ)” were used to elicit response from the respondents. The test re-test method was used to test the reliability of WEQ and TJPQ which yielded coefficients of 0.89 and 0.77 respectively. Four research questions were raised and answered using frequency counts, percentage, and mean, while three hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance using Pearson Product Moment Correlation.</p> <p>The findings revealed that school location was moderately conducive for teachers’ work; the level of interpersonal relationship among teachers was high and the provision of physical facilities was moderate. The findings also revealed that there was significant relationship between school location and teachers’ job performance (r = 0.310, p = 0.001); and there was significant relationship between provision of physical facilities and teachers’ job performance (r = 0.578, p = 0.000). The study therefore concluded that work environment enhanced job performance of the teachers. Based on the findings and conclusion, it was recommended that physical facilities such as conducive office space, potable water and constant electricity should be provided to aid teachers’ job performance</p> Femi Idowu Aladetan Copyright (c) 2023 Femi Idowu Aladetan Mon, 09 Jan 2023 00:00:00 +0000 Implementing Competence-Based Advanced Level Human Geography Framework at One High School in Zimbabwe During The Covid 19 Era <p>This paper sought to gain insight into the implementation of the new Competence-Based Advanced Level Human Geography framework during COVID-19 era.
