e-LJam’s first major project, the High School Project commenced in 2005 and comprised a wide cross section of educational institutions involved in teaching/learning at the high school level. This project was developed as a joint initiative with the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information (MOEYI) with the primary goal being to utilize ICT’s to contribute to an improvement in the quality of education in high schools, to enhance the learning experience and to improve the level of passes in the school-leaving CXC/CSEC examinations.
After much consultation with principals, teachers and other stakeholders, components of the project were targeted at providing digested instructional materials for teachers and students; computers, multimedia equipment and training of teachers in the use of the technology in instructional delivery. The equipment given to schools under the project has since been handed over to the (MOEYI).
