The Papua New Guinea Education Institute (PNGEI) will be hosting e-learning training for teachers and lecturers prior to the roll-out of the policy.
State of the art e-learning technologies were set up by a South Korean company called Sungwoon International Limited at PNGEI, ready to be implemented.
This e-learning program is a priority policy for the government and will be introduced nationwide in the near future.
However, Education Secretary Dr Michael Tapo said it will depend on funding, training and how schools can adapt to this changes.
“This technology will enable teachers to interact with their students electronically, “Dr Tapo said.
The teacher will teach using electronic teaching guides and programs on a widescreen; students will access this through small iPods on the desk.
This will make it easier for students to save their work and study at home.
“They need no text books anymore,” Secretary Tapo said.
PNGEI Director, Dr Zui Neofa, said at this stage they are training IT lecturers and the program will be open to primary school teachers, secondary school teachers and lecturers in tertiary institutions.
After visiting the e-learning centre, Doctor Tapo did the ground breaking ceremony for the new e-library at PNGEI.
The e-library, costing about K1 million, will cater for study and research facilities for post graduate studies and state of the art IT rooms.
