The Education Ministry is about to give Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) centres and their respective teachers the ‘hook up’.
Minister in the Ministry, Lisa Morris-Julian, revealed on Wednesday that the ministry will be outfitting these centres with computers and internet connectivity, while teachers will also be provided with electronic devices to conduct online classes.
Seventy (70) teachers have already received devices provided by the MoE. And, in the coming months, laptop distribution will continue to ensure that all teachers are provided with devices.
Morris-Julian said the teachers will also be equipped with information and communication technology (ICT) skills.
She said: “The importance of continuous teacher training is to ensure that they can adequately deliver the ECCE curriculum in a developmentally appropriate manner, bearing in mind that screen time at that age is limited.
