Jamaica: Huawei donated a state-of-the-art Huawei Idea Hub Interactive Classroom System to Pembroke Hall High School, St Andrew, Jamaica. The system will support online and remote learning.

The Interactive Classroom System will help in advance features such as intelligent writing, intelligent collaboration, interactive whiteboarding, high-definition video conferencing and wireless sharing. The donation has been presented by Huawei, an international Information Communication Technology firm, to the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information of Jamaica.

During the handover ceremony on November 18, Minister of Education, Youth and Information Fayval Williams said that Idea Hubs of Huawei are specially designed to transform classrooms and open spaces into smart spaces; moreover, it is perfect for being used for online use learning.

Minister added that via Idea Hub ministry wants to fulfil its mandate of bringing more advanced technology into the classroom so that the students should come to know about the new developments in the digital space.

The Education Minister highlighted that the system donated in Pembroke Hall High School is one of the two systems donated by Huawei Jamaica to the Ministry. The second system was handed over to a Clarendon based secondary school.

While speaking in the ceremony Dr Nigel Clarke, Member of Parliament for St. Andrew North Western, said that this new system is well arranged in accordance with the motive of the government to create a highly trained and skilled human capital.

Dr Clarke said, “It is absolutely clear that the path forward for Jamaica must involve and include human capital improvement and human capital investment. The long-term solution to Jamaica’s [development] is to radically and transformative improve the stock of human capital in Jamaica,”

Dr Clarke is also Minister of Finance, and the Public Service stated that the donation of an interactive classroom system would prepare the students of Jamaica to face the world. It is just a very small step, but it would help the students to use the technology.
