Over sixty educators are better prepared to impart knowledge on information communication technology to their students having successfully completed a workshop organized by the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development.Four Canadian teachers; Bev Knutson Shaw, Shelley Friesen, Darlene Hubber, and Joni Turville as well as Dominican Corazon Durand facilitated this two week workshop for sixty three (63) educators.The teachers were encouraged by Senior Planning Officer in the Ministry of Education, Ted Serrant to use the tools which they were exposed in the workshop to make the learning experience for their students a “fun” one. “I am sure that your students will look forward to what you have learnt in the coming weeks and our prayer is that we will begin to see some of the tools that you’ve used, or been exposed to, over those two weeks, used in your classroom”.He implored them further that the information and skills which they received could be beneficial in their “personal and also professional development”.Serrant noted however, that in order for the teachers to “really rip the benefits” of the workshop experience, it is imperative that they “continue to explore” ICT tools.“Find a computer wherever you can find one; if you can afford, buy one, there are a number of them in public places around here. It is essential that you find those computers, those other tools and that you continue what you have learnt, that you actually utilize what you have learnt, because as you learn you become more comfortable, and you also develop and appreciate the power and capacity of those tools for working smartly, but also becoming proficient as its use”.Chief Education Officer, Stephenson Hyacinth, complimented the teachers for their commitment towards the teaching profession and their excellence in teaching.“We need to be proud of our teachers in Dominica. After having gone through a challenging year, a year of ups and downs, many things that happened during the year that you did not really expect, the unforeseen circumstances that you had to deal with, and when you are given some vacation you’re asked that you need to attend an ICT workshop. Some of you I guess may have frowned, some of you may have said again, but nevertheless you showed your commitment to the teaching service of Dominica by attending this workshop for the past two weeks and I need to compliment you for your great effort”.He stated further that their participation in the workshop demonstrates their “commitment to teaching, commitment to the children of Dominica, commitment to building an education system that is characterized by excellence”. According to Hyacinth, these workshops are part of the Ministry of Education’s vision that every child can succeed.“We in the Ministry of Education have adopted the vision that every child can succeed and workshops like these help us to achieve that vision, because I am certain that the things you have learnt here will impact upon teaching and learning processes at our schools in the new school year”. One of the Canadian facilitators also complimented the teachers for their ability to use limited resources to teach their students.[nggallery id= 204] Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!last_img read more

Hammers issue stadium denial

Posted on by

first_imgWest Ham are confident that the deal to move into the Olympic Stadium does not contravene domestic or European legislation.The Premier League club are set to move into the London 2012 showpiece venue for the start of 2016-17 season, but the journey there has been a tortuous one, fraught with controversy.Fresh questions were raised about the award of the 99-year lease to West Ham on Tuesday, when it was suggested the deal may contravene European state aid law.The report suggests the failure of London Mayor Boris Johnson and the London Legacy Development Corporation to obtain prior approval from the European Commission before signing the deal opens up the possibility of challenges from anyone who feels disadvantaged.That could leave West Ham facing a large compensation bill, but the club defended their position in a lengthy statement about the Olympic Stadium deal. A West Ham spokesman said: “West Ham United is confident that its agreement with the LLDC complies with all relevant UK and European legislation and categorically does not constitute state aid. “Indeed, the European Commission looked into a complaint in relation to our move to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in 2013 but ‘decided not to further pursue’ the matter.”The club was selected as anchor concessionaire following a fair, transparent and robust process that was open to any group or organisation in the country. “Out of the four proposals submitted, West Ham’s was selected as it delivered a sustainable and viable future for the Stadium and, crucially, provided the best return for the taxpayer. “The agreement with the LLDC will see West Ham make a substantial capital contribution towards the conversion works of a Stadium that it may only rent for up to 25 matchdays a year, pay a multimillion pound annual usage fee, as well as offering a share of food and catering sales from its supporters.”The worldwide draw of hosting the most popular and watched football league in the world in such an iconic venue will add value to any sponsorship and commercial agreements related to the Stadium, which the public purse stands to further benefit from.”It is clear that the linking of the naming rights to West Ham United generates real cash value for the LLDC. “Without West Ham United, the Stadium would continue to cost the taxpayer millions of pounds a year.”With us, the public purse will see a return on the hundreds of millions of pounds that were committed to build the Stadium, long before West Ham’s association had begun.”last_img read more
