THE Ministry of Education (MoE), Trinidad and Tobago Television (TTT) Ltd and the National Library and Information System Authority (Nalis) have partnered to ensure that educational content is provided to infant, primary and secondary school students.
Lessons for various classes are being delivered by MoE educators and recorded by TTT for airing at Nalis' audiovisual room, Abercromby Street, Port of Spain. The classes began last month.
Nalis’ manager of corporate communications Debbie Goodman said in a media release: “The recording of lessons for students for airing on television is ideal, especially for those persons who do not have access to the internet. Nalis is extremely pleased to facilitate the recordings and provide support to teachers and students.”
The lessons reach some 200,000 students daily on various platforms, the release said. So far, lessons have been recorded for infant one to standard five and secondary school students. The subject areas already covered are drama, ICT, maths, social science and the visual and performing arts.
In addition to facilitating these recordings, Nalis has been assisting the Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Division of the MoE by providing access to children’s literature for its series on Talk City 91.1FM.
The authority is scheduled to deliver a series of webinars under the MoE’s Principals Leadership webinar series and the Teacher Supporting Teachers mentorship programme and will be creating storytelling content to be used at the infant, primary and secondary levels of the MoE.
