At Pick A Book Kenya we believe that information and knowledge are fuel for the human spirit. They foster understanding, discovery, enjoyment, learning, and commerce around the globe. We believe in a world where people always have access to the information they need, advancing their lives so they can advance the lives of others.
Learning and the use of technology in education is becoming one of the most important requirements in modern age, and hence, the government of Kenya has accelerated efforts in the implementation of learning as a top priority within their national projects’ long-term plans such as the Competency Based Curriculum. Since early inspections of technology specialists agreed on the role of technology and its effectiveness in the development of the educational process of communities, which keeps pace with the requirements of the future, and that there is no retreat from its application or doubt in its success.
We cannot imagine our students and our teachers without mastery of technology nor without the use of computers and the Internet, and we cannot compare a state to another developed country without a considerable measure of the use and application of technology in education. Aware of the importance of this sector and due to its long and rich experience; Pick A Book Kenya has insisted to be an innovator in the field of e-commerce and its applications.
