Thankfully, we seem to have arrived at a critical turning point in the education system in Jamaica. We have finally realized the importance of technology and are beginning to explore practical ways of incorporating it in the classroom. I am truly excited about the prospects . I am also looking forward to seeing improved results in the core subject areas of Math and English for Jamaican students. Recently, one of my closest friends introduced me to a brand new company that is sure to create huge waves in the education industry. This company is called Niritech and it focuses on creating a virtual learning environment in several CSEC and CAPE subjects. For more information about their products and services click here.
My preamble should have left you wondering what makes Niritech so unique. The following is a list of the beauty of the NiriTech experience.
Students Participate in Small Online Classes
Instead of having to sit through a boring lecture in a cramped classroom, students are able to sit in the comfort of their homes and participate in online classes. These classes will have a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 20 students...the perfect size to truly encourage learning. The teacher will be able to use an interactive white board and facilitate discussions. Students will also be able to communicate with their teacher outside of the scheduled classroom sessions.
There Will Be Daily Activities
Throughout the week there will be daily assessments that the students have to complete. This will allow the students to actively engage in the learning process. Students will also be required to take mid-semester exams and teachers have to provide feedback within at least 3 days. The system is structured to ensure the student passes.
There is an Online Tutoring Option
There are some students who need special help. Niritech has taken this into consideration and provided a tutoring option for these students. This individual help could mean the difference between a grade one and a grade two.
