Education Ministry to increase technology in schools

Minister with responsibility for Education, Karl Samuda, has responded to some of  the proposals made by his Opposition counterpart, Peter Bunting, to address the critical shortage of  teachers. 
 
Samuda, who asserted that efforts have already been made to quickly get more trained teachers into the system, disclosed that there are also plans to increase the use of  technology for content delivery.
 
Bunting presented the proposals on Thursday after the Education Ministry revealed that 390 public sector teachers have resigned since September last year.
 
According to  Bunting, the scholarship system for teacher training with the UWI and UTECH should be re-established to boost the number of  teachers in the system.
 
Samuda says significant amounts are already being spent to facilitate teacher training, adding that  more use of  technology to address the chronic teacher shortage, will include teachers giving lessons from a remote location to several students.
