The Division of Education, Innovation and Energy held a presentation for its Primary Schools’ Chromebook Initiative Presentation at the Division’s conference room in Dutch Fort on Friday (January 26).
Two Tobago schools, Scarborough Methodist Primary School and Hope Anglican Primary School, received Chromebooks, thanks to the generosity of Dr. Brian Yearwood, PhD, an education superintendent at Texas Tech University. The Chromebooks will be equipped with two programmes – Mind Play and MyOn – that will be available to students in order to help them improve their reading ability.
