Promethean has partnered with the Bahamas Ministry of Education, Science and Technology to provide students throughout the Bahamas network of islands equitable access to advanced education opportunities. Supporting the Bahamas Education Initiative, Promethean is working with the Ministry to bring the company’s ActivClassroom solution to life in all Bahamian schools.
“We are honoured to support the Ministry and Bahamian educators in their efforts to synchronize distance learning opportunities,” said Jim Marshall, CEO of Promethean. “With the ActivClassroom, a teacher in any school can teach any subject to any student in any location live – with video, sound, images and interactive material. The students will receive the lesson content in real-time and be able to respond instantaneously to the teacher. Opening the door for distance learning on this scale creates exciting possibilities and removes barriers. Students have no limits to what they can achieve – all they need is access to learning.”
The Family Islands
While the island of New Providence is home to almost 70 percent of Bahamians, 30 percent of citizens reside on the other islands, collectively known as the Family Islands. Providing advanced coursework to students in many of the Family Islands is logistically difficult.
Through the partnership with Promethean, the Ministry is creating a framework to provide all students access to advanced coursework, regardless of their geographical location. Additionally, the Promethean Bahamas Education Initiative provides technical expertise to assist the Ministry to expand programs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
