Secondary School Students can use software to test performance in several subject areas – 21st Jun 2013
A young entrepreneur and educator is working to bring Educational tools to Secondary school students in a form that is easy to use and understand. Kojo Parris is the founder of Roraima Learning Trust (RLT) and the online software he is proposing to use will help students check their progress in the subjects they do at school without having to wait until exams come around.
Parris said this type of learning has the potential to be very successful and will be helpful to students wherever they are once they can get internet access to download the software onto their laptops or their smart phones.
Parris is partnering with the Ministry of Education, The One Laptop Per Family Programme and E-Networks to execute the project and said that at the moment, only two subjects are offered. He hopes to bring that number up to 10 core subjects by September this year. So far he says he is enthused at what he is seeing.
The founder of RLT hopes to take the programme globally and he is hoping this project will, by its success, be hailed as a Guyana creation.
