Technical Cooperation

Project Name: Project for ICT in Education in St. Lucia
Project Description: The Government of Saint Lucia proposed its new “SMART Nation Initiative” project to Taiwan, which includes the fields of education, network infrastructure, “smart community”, “smart heritage”, and “smart identity”. Considering the scope of the initiative and the available resources, Taiwan Technical Mission in St. Lucia decided to focus on “smart education” after discussion with the Government of St. Lucia. After a comprehensive analysis of problems faced by St. Lucia, the quality of innovative education using ICT in Education was found to be weaker than anticipated. As a result, this project proposed using ICT in Education at vanguard schools to develop a featured curriculum and establish a replicable model for “ICT in education” that is replicable and will be rolled out across the country. The first step is to train teachers to ensure they have the skills to use ICT and, after producing a diverse range of related teaching materials, establish an education portal and an online learning platform.
