Thursday 13 January 2011  The official launch of the UNESCO funded Mathematics project which includes the use of special software aimed at  building capacity in the area of geometry for both  students and teachers  points to the growing role of information and communication technologies (ICTs)  as teaching  tools in schools.


Chief Education Officer in the Ministry of Education Ms. Augusta Ifill  made the call for educators  to explore  this new domain with  today's  crop of technology savvy students who are generally  very interested  in using Information and Communication Technology tools.


Ms. Ifill  lamented the poor performances which have been registered at  the  Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) Exams and indicated her optimism that the Project entitled “Geometry in Splendour” will awaken a new thirst for learning in students and build new enthusiasm among teachers.


Funding for this programme to the tune of US$ 20, 0000 was secured under  the UNESCO Participation Programme 2010 to 2011 and forms part of UNESCO's Education Campaign.
