Day two saw the batch of teachers separated into their respective subject groups – mathematics, the sciences and information technology. Of course, I would move with the science teachers to Glenmuir Lab1. Our facilitator Mrs Norma Williams (seen here below)

norma williams Through her guidance, we were introduced – or re-introduced as the case has been for some – to the ministry’s education portal: moeschools.edu.jm. We were supplied with temporary login credentials, in order to gain access to the portal space, after which a few demos were done, in terms of utilizing the tools within the portal.
