e-Learning Jamaica has distributed 59 interactive panels valued at J$24 million to multiple schools across the island to improve teaching and learning experiences.
The devices are touch-sensitive screens that allow users to interact with digital content in real-time.
According to Kimona Gordon, e-Learning Jamaica communications manager, the procurement is a part of the company’s mandate to integrate and expand the use of technology in schools.
“With their ability to seamlessly integrate with educational software or learning platforms, they help teachers conduct engaging classroom sessions that capture students’ attention. Their intuitive interface and interactive features facilitate hands-on learning, supporting direct interaction of students with animated lessons and real-time collaboration through practice questions,” Gordon explained.
She added that the interactive panels have become an invaluable learning tool for teachers and students.
e-Learning Jamaica is an agency of the Ministry of Science, Energy, Telecommunications, and Transport.
It provides expertise in the management and implementation of innovative technology projects that support the improvement of national learning outcomes while encouraging information and communications technology (ICT) solutions.
