COVID-19: MOE seeks teachers to volunteer, sumbit content

COVID-19 has forced the closure of schools until April 20, and the Ministry of Education (MoE) is seeking alternative measures of curriculum delivery to ensure that students have continued access to educational opportunites.

In a memo on Monday, the Ministry asked all primary and secondary school principals to compile a list of teachers who are willing to be videotaped or audiotaped delivering lessons to be broadcast nationally.

It is also requesting curriculum content and materials that teachers are willing to share to add to the pool of resources such as lesson notes, handouts,video clips, tests and assessments.

In a Facebook post on Monday, Minister in the Ministry of Education Dr Lovell Francis advised parents and teachers that they could access the MOE's platforms for the SEA, CSEC and CAPE content.

He added that there are 50 volunteer teachers who are writing and forwarding content.

On Monday, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley
mandated a sub Cabinet Committee on Education to advise on education matters for example SEA, CSEC and CAPE.
