internet must be brought into the classroom, that’s the view of retired principal
of Camperdown High School, Cynthia Cooke. Mrs. Cooke said that teachers have to
use creative ways to reach students. “Bring the internet into your classrooms,
you can’t have the excuse I had, we didn’t have that, but it is there, bring it
in there. Most classrooms are now giving that opportunity, it just means that
you have to prepare a little more.”
Mathematics Institute of Northern Caribbean University has completed another
three workshops in major towns of Jamaica. The workshop which commenced in
2014, aim to train in service teachers to use creative methods to teach mathematics
to students in primary and secondary schools.
Cooke also said that teachers are to appreciate students that have different
learning styles and abilities. She was speaking at the NCU Math Institute
Workshop at the East Jamaica Conference Centre in Kingston on July 14. The
Institute was planned to assist teachers to increase their performance in
teaching mathematics in primary and secondary schools.
