Abstract

PCF10 Sub-theme: Building Resilience // The global response to emerging technologies leaves much to be desired in the girl-child education, more so, one of the stabilizing factors for the general well-being of the society is the level of investment in formal, non-formal, and informal women’s education. After all, the trained girl-child will eventually become an adult woman. This paper is intended to integrate and submerge virtual reality into the African knowledge system specifically, African technology as an integral aspect of the knowledge system which is yet to gain decisive attention probably due to the lack of documentation and facts that some crafts and vacations are women gender-biased. Several scholars have worked on girl-child education in the aspects of survival rights, emotions, freedom, self-actualization, and equitable child rights, but this work will be moving a step further by introducing the use of virtual reality in the training of girl-child for emancipation, increased productivity, multi-tasking and the development of inherent abilities. At the end of the day, facilitating resilience the innovative tendency of the research work is pertinent to the development of not only African but global knowledge systems. The work would be based on both primary and secondary sources with the adoption of conceptual and theoretical frameworks. The outcome of the research work would be the improvement of the quality of training to enhance the hitch-free transformation of the society even with the exigencies of world emergencies. // Paper ID 0521
