Approximately 300 primary schools across the island are to be provided with high speed Internet service, free of cost, over the next three years.
This will be facilitated through partnership between the Government and the LIME Jamaica Foundation
Minister of Education, Ronald Thwaites, said the project will assist in bridging the digital divide, by infusing information communication technology (ICT) in education at the primary level.
Minister Thwaites added that the Ministry plans to cluster infant schools with primary schools where there is space “so therefore, the services which e-learning will make available and which will be connected with LIME’s access, is going to benefit a much larger cohort”.
LIME’s Managing Director for Jamaica and Cayman, Garry Sinclair, says more than 200,000 students will benefit from the partnership.
