The initiatives taken by the government of developing countries prove that the whole world depends a lot on the potential of new age education. For example, the ministry of Jamaica announced distribution of nearly 4, 00,000 tablets among the school children early this year. “The E-Learning Jamaica Company Limited is now accepting bids for the provision of 30,000 tablet computers to be distributed in schools under a Government-sponsored programme which launches in the upcoming academic year”, Technology Minister Phillip Paulwell said E-Learning Jamaica. It is a five-year plan to educate the future generations of Jamaica through digital instructions.
And the good news is that the attempts taken so far to accomplish the mission have been commendable. They even received a grant of $1.4 billion from the Universal Service Fund. As per recent reports, around 25, 000 tablets will be delivered to 38 schools. Students and teachers ranging from infant to higher learning departments will benefit from the initiative.
“Technology allows us to break down the old traditional barriers to accessing learning resources, and this administration is going to pilot the removal of all those barriers, to allow every Jamaican child an equal shot at achieving his or her goals”, said Mr. Paulwell. The government of Jamaica wants the citizen to maximize the learning potential and opportunities through technological education. And with such attempts in e-learning Jamaica they only want to assure that all the people of Jamaica irrespective of their financial condition benefits from the programme. “Students and teachers, who do not have their own computer devices, are at a disadvantage, due to their inability to access and utilise e-learning resources,” said Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Sandrea Falconer during the announcements.

In addition to technical proficiency in using apps and games for knowledge acquisition the recent trend of customized curriculum demands mature behaviour to optimize the objectives.
