By BBN Staff: “Digi Learn” the initiative coined between the Ministry of Education, Youth, Sports, and Culture (MOEYS) and Digi, which employs the use of individual laptops for students during lessons is being rolled out to more high schools after a successful pilot project in nine schools countrywide.
Digi announced last week that it will roll out the project to nine more schools and expand the project scope from being exclusively for first form pupils to include second form students. The project also carries a training component for teachers.
At the announcement press conference, outgoing Digi Chief Executive Officer, Rochus Schreiber, said that the project will contribute positively to Belize’s education system and, in the longer run, the economy, by producing students that are more equipped to deal with the digitizing of major job markets.
Chief Education Officer of the MOEYS Dr. Carol Bab, explained that the project greatly increases classroom efficiency, such as students getting immediate feedback on their assessments, rather than waiting for the teacher to correct and grade their work.
The project expansion will be rolled out over a four-year period.
