By Aaron Humes: Former Minister of Education Francis Fonseca insisted that the planned e-learning program has not been properly thought through, starting with the method being selected.

Fonseca cited studies saying that computer tablets have been shown as not effective for students participating in e-learning programs and that laptop computers are shown to be widely better.

The Freetown area representative pointed out that a few years ago, the Government had given out tablet systems, many of which, he said, have since been destroyed and worn out.

And he pointed out that the structure of the program could well benefit from finding additional sources of funding including grants.

Ultimately, he concluded, such a program should be left to a new government – perhaps a People’s United Party government – to develop and implement.
