More than 2,500 students among 170 early-childhood institutions across Jamaica will soon benefit from an array of technological aids aimed at enhancing their learning experience through the Culture, Health, Arts, Sports, and Education (CHASE) Fund’s Technology Enhancement Programme.

Floyd Green, minister without portfolio in the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM), provided details at today’s (May 17) post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House.

“We are replacing the white boards and bringing technology at the earliest level of our child’s interaction with the education system, and we are targeting 170 early-childhood institutions to get this done,” said Green.

The programme will provide young learners with computers, printers, and interactive display boards.

Green expressed the government’s commitment to integrating technology into the education system at the earliest stage possible.

The initiative aims to replace traditional whiteboards with advanced technological solutions, ensuring that children are exposed to modern learning tools from the very beginning.
