With technology seen as critical to this island’s future development, hundreds of people flocked to the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Conference Centre last week to see the latest on offer in this area.
The Barbados Technology In Education Conference (BTEC) And Exhibition was opened by Minister of Education and Human Resource Development Ronald Jones, who said the country’s performance as it relates to Information Communication Technology (ICT) had been impressive, adding that it was not among the countries that have failed to benefit from the advancements technology offers.
Nearly 6 000 computers were being utilized in the island’s school system with practically every education officer, principal and teacher allocated a laptop for administrative and pedagogical use.
