Microsoft, America’s giant computer company, will partner with local universities and colleges to promote the use of technology in teaching and learning.

The partnership will see improved use of ICT through the signing of education transformational agreements between public and private organisations.

The decision is seen as Microsoft’s attempts at deepening its presence in Kenya.

It is also geared towards developing professionals ready for the next wave of digital evolution in data science, artificial intelligence, mixed reality and application development and several other fields.

Officials from selected institutions would be trained by Microsoft experts to help bridge the gaps needed to ensure the production of employable graduates and entrepreneurs.
