Minister of Science, Energy and Technology Hon. Fayval Williams is applauding the latest move to advance ICT in schools with the signing of contracts to provide 65,000 tablets to teachers and students.
Four contracts, valued at approximately US$11.1 million were signed with three local vendors to supply 25,000 tablets for teachers and 40,000 shared tablets for students.
In hailing the move as a big win for ICT in schools, Minister Williams said “these initiatives are timely given the impact on the education sector caused by the closure of schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the increase reliance on online lessons for all teaching and learning. These initiatives now put more connected devices in the hands of our teachers and students.”
