STUDENTS in disadvantaged and remote elementary and primary schools will have access to quality learning from a model classroom in the nation’s capital through television starting next year.
Education secretary Michael Tapo made this announcement on Friday at the signing of the completion certificate of the installation of video production equipment for the government’s EQUITV program at the Ward Strip Demonstration School in Port Moresby.
Mr Tapo thanked the Japanese government and its people for their support in donating the latest state-of-the-art media education equipment to help PNG children.
JICA’s chief representative Shigeru Sugiyama said Japan is happy to assist PNG to raise its education standard and help the people of this country to live better lives.
Mr Sugiyama said media equipment for the project and the instillations cost the Japanese government 71.8 million yen (almost K1.7 million).
He said the Department of Education and JICA started the project for enhancing access and capacity of EQUITV program (EQUITV phase 2) in May 2012.
"The project will aim to improve the quality of classroom teaching and learning through TV programs and strengthening the system for disseminating EQUITV program at primary schools nationwide," he added.
Meanwhile, Mr Tapo said the department will implement the standards based curriculum for elementary and junior primary schools from next year.
