R4YFF to launch digital literacy program

THE Reach 4 Your Future Foundation (R4YFF) is preparing to launch a digital literacy program in the country.

President Ganesh Sen said the first program would be rolled out at Nabitu District School in Nausori with some of the equipment having already arrived into the country.

"We will be setting up a digital hub here," he said.

"It will be a mobile hub and we can actually move the digital facilities around the classrooms.

"We can also go offline and online whether there is access or not so children can still have an internet experience without internet connection.

"We are talking about doing professional development in the classroom rather then to go to specific workshops. Because the teachers, if they don't have these skills, they can't deliver. The curriculum is OK but we need to teach teachers how to accelerate the learning program using the right methodology."

He said they had identified six other schools around the country to implement the project.

"One is at Nabasovi District School on Koro Island.

"This will become the hub at the island where we can teach teachers.

"Once we get teachers involved in remote islands, we can create a benchmark.

"If they can do it on remote islands with limited resources, there is no excuse for urban schools."

He added the implementation date of the project was yet to be established because of logistical challenges.
