School Laptop distribution to be continued and made more effective

The School laptop programme will be re-instituted at the nation’s secondary schools in due course, however unlike the previous initiative, Minister in the ministry of Education, Dr. Lovell Francis this morning told News Power Now that the programme will this time, prove effective to the facilitation of learning within the school environment.

Dr. Francis highlighted that the former method lacked the required infrastructure at the schools, to deliver a positive outcome.

Dr. Francis made it clear that each school will be given a number of laptops which will be the property of the school. He added that each school will be outfitted with the required WIFI to ensure learning takes place, using the laptops.
