  2. 2. TAP 201 2 The National Commission for Science, Technology and Innovation is the public sector agency responsible for fostering research, science, technology and innovation in Kenya. NACOSTI is established by the Science, Technology and Innovation Act, No. 28 of 2013 (Rev. 2014) (STI Act) as a State Corporation. The Commission regulates and assures quality in Science, Technology and Innovation Sector and advises the Government in matters related thereto. The functions of NACOSTI are as outlined under section 6 (1) of the STI Act. NACOSTI is responsible for promotion, regulation, advisory and coordination of research, science, and technology development in the country. The Commission promotes knowledge sharing on the existing research system as well as private sector involvement in the development of scientific research systems. Regulation is undertaken through licensing of all scientific research, registration, and accreditation of research institutions. NACOSTI sets agenda through development, in consultation with stakeholders, the priorities in scientific, technological and innovation activities in Kenya. In addition, NACOSTI is the focal point on several international commitments on matters research, science and technology and coordinates and evaluates projects funded under Treaties and Protocols. NACOSTI is the specialized agency spearheading mainstreaming of science, technology and innovation in Ministries, Departments, and Agencies. Under this program, institutions commit to undertake activities aimed at enhancing STI within their operations. Key aspects under this initiative include human resource development, facilities and equipment, collaborations and partnerships, and dissemination of outputs. Some of the functions of NACOSTI are; (a) develop, in consultation with stakeholders, the priorities in scientific,technological and innovation activities in Kenya in relation to theeconomic and social policies of the Government, and the country’s international commitments; (b) lead inter-agency efforts to implement sound policies and budgets,working in collaboration with the county governments, and organisations involved in science and technology and innovatio within Kenya and outside Kenya; (c) advise the national and county governments on the science,technology and innovation policy, including general planning andassessment of the necessary financial resources; (d) liaise with the National Innovation Agency and the National ResearchFund to ensure funding and implementation of prioritized researchprogrammes; NACOSTI have the following roles in curriculum implications  Learning Analytics used by teachers to better record the learning behaviors of students.  Automation. Students can get a better chance of receiving lectures automatically at specific times. Lectures can be digitally scheduled. Not to mention, through automation, a better way to adopt the use of artificial intelligence is well-aided.
  3. 3. TAP 201 3  Usage of 4/5G Technologies in Education.Students are more likely to benefit from this unique innovation, as this promises them quick downloads of student files and resources and more powerful networks.  Adaptive Learning technology that provides learning activities to students, based on their needs and learning style/behavior. Consider adaptive learning as a piece of tech which adapts to every students’ needs in a short time. It helps students to adapt to unique learning paths that are entirely based on their interests and learning ability. Universities play a key role in the development of human resource for all production sectors of the economy through training and conducting research and development for the generation, curation and dissemination of new knowledge. University research programmes are critical in the development of theoretical foundations in basic sciences that underpin applied research. A great proportion of research funding initiatives focus more on applied research, seen to generate quick gains as opposed to basic research, whose benefits are not always apparent. The research portfolio at universities has been declining over the years due to low funding and greater focus on training. Government Departments, Agencies and partners should give priority to: Enhanced research portfolio and capacity at universities and research institutions to address the research agenda; Strengthening the existing models of linking academia, industry, community and government for effective technology transfer; Enhanced effectiveness of teaching Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) subjects and assure equity in enrolment to STEM programmes at all levels of education.
