Jamaica News: The Ministry of Education, Youth and Information continues to collaborate with Digicel Jamaica and Flow Jamaica to provide data plans for students and teachers in order to facilitate distance learning.
Chief Education Officer, Dr. Kasan Troupe, said that the Education Data Plan arrangement is part of the Ministry’s effort to ensure that teaching and learning continue during the closure of schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Teachers and students will access this data service at a reduced cost. Data grants have also been provided by the Ministry for selected teachers and student beneficiaries of the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH).
Students and teachers who have activated the Education Data Plans will be granted zero-rated access to several frequently used learning platforms and websites.
