Willard Patton Pre-School students get enhanced learning experience with BTC e-learning initiative
Willard Patton Pre-School students will have their learning experience enhanced as the Bahamas Telecommunications Company Ltd. (BTC) and the Ministry of Education introduced their e-learning initiative, through which the children will be able to make use of smart technology as a part of the learning process. BTC provided Wi-Fi solutions to the school.
“Studies have shown that between birth and the age of five, a child’s brain develops more than any other time in life, and the use of technology in the classroom at an early age motivates children to learn and boosts creativity,” said Dexter Cartwright, BTC CEO. “Programs like these remain near and dear to my heart, because at BTC we strive to ensure that every single citizen from as young as our pre-schoolers, has access to the latest and best communications solutions.”
BTC worked hand-in-hand with the government of The Bahamas on its latest initiatives.
“This is a true example of what public-private partnerships look like. We were happy to work along with the government on this latest program. The students at Willard Patton Pre-School now have access to a safe and secure broadband connection with BTC.”
The Willard Patton Pre-School initiative was a pilot of a broader project to provide Internet access to all schools throughout the country.
Prime Minister Dr. Hubert A. Minnis attended the occasion and toured the school’s grounds with other officials, observing the children in action on their tablets.
