Government signs contracts for multi-grade and curriculum development consultancies

first_img Sharing is caring! 93 Views   one comment EducationLocalNewsPrimarySecondary Government signs contracts for multi-grade and curriculum development consultancies by: – June 13, 2012 Share Sharecenter_img Tweet (L-R) Ava Czapalay, President and CEO of EduNova, Mrs. Ruth Allport: Permanent Secretary-Ministry of Employment, Trade, Industry and Diaspora Affairs, Mrs. Jennifer Wallace-Lafond: Permanent Secretary, Petter Saint-Jean: Minister for Education and Human Resource Development, Dr. Collin McIntyre: Minister for Employment, Trade, Industry and Diaspora Affairs and Doug Phelan, Manager for Trade, Tourism and Investment for ACOA Nova ScotiaRoseau, Dominica – The Government of Dominica has signed contracts with Edu-Nova Cooperative Ltd. valued at XCD$279, 693.00 for consultancies in multi-grade teaching and curriculum development.Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education Mrs. Jennifer Wallace-Lafond signed the contracts on Friday with the Canada based Edu-Nova, an education and training provider.Hon. Petter Saint Jean, Minister for Education and Human Resource Development, Hon. Colin Mc Intyre and Mrs. Ruth Allport, Minister and Permanent Secretary respectively in the Ministry of Employment, Trade, Industry and Diaspora Affairs witnessed the signing.The results of the multi-grade consultancy are expected to assist the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development with the effective application of multi-grade teaching methodologies and provide training in best practices and strategies for effective pedagogy in multi-grade schools.Edu Nova will also assist in the revision of the National Curriculum Framework and the development of a program of study and curriculum guides for selected subjects in key stages 2 and 3. The consultancies fall under the Dominica Education Enhancement Project (DEEP) which seeks to provide comprehensive teacher training and professional development to enhance competencies in key subject areas. The DEEP also aims to better equip education practitioners to respond to the challenges of universal education, particularly the need to enhance education outcomes and provide support to students with different learning styles.Edu-Nova says it will focus on developing technical and vocational education and training and will then develop programmes of study and curriculum guides that will ensure that teaching content and methodology are consistent with the revised National Curriculum Framework.The consultants say they see great potential for the education system in Dominica where, in some cases, multiple grades are taught in single classrooms.“The professional educators on our team believe that the existence of several ages in one classroom can, in fact, strengthen the learning experience and they are proponents of including children of different ages in one classroom with a pedagogy that reflects differentiated learning in all regards,” said Edu-Nova.The consulting team has promised an integrated approach to the two consultancies which would develop curriculum guides to facilitate multi-grade environments resulting in “a totally inclusive and integrated plan for education.”The multi-grade and curriculum development consultancies will run until October 2013 and April 2014 respectively.

Hodgson worries for young stars

first_imgEngland manager Roy Hodgson worries about the spotlight young players are put under and believes a lack of strong family support can leave them vulnerable to outside influences. Ward has been a hugely influential figure in the life of Sterling, whose father was murdered in Jamaica when he was nine – four years after the youngster had moved to England with his mother. “I worry for all these young players, to be honest,” said former Liverpool boss Hodgson. “They become stars very quickly. Their period of potential stardom doesn’t last for very long these days. “Sometimes a few games in the Premier League and you are a star. Jack Grealish is a good example of that, isn’t he? “A few months ago he was playing in Aston Villa’s reserves. Suddenly he’s in the first team and now we regard him as a star as well. “We should never forget we’re dealing with very young people. “I believe from what I know of Raheem that he’s strong enough to compartmentalise his life – from this side to what happens on the field of play, which is what interests me, but I do sympathise with them.” Asked what advice he would give a young player, Hodgson added: “If you wanted a one-word answer, I would say ‘family’. Family is very important. “But of course for some of these young players they don’t have the same strength of family around them as maybe a (Steven) Gerrard or a (Frank) Lampard have had so then you’re in the realms of saying, ‘Who’s going to work in place of those people?’. “I still believe the managers of their football clubs are important people for them. “I think that nine times out of 10 if you’re talking about the top clubs the manager will be a top-class guy, a top-class leader, and he’ll be able to give good advice. “But it’s a very individual thing and quite frankly I wouldn’t dream of commenting on any situation like Raheem’s with Liverpool because I really don’t know the details. “I don’t know Raheem’s side, his agent’s side, the club’s side. The people who know that are Liverpool Football Club. “What I have to do is distance myself from it, sympathise with anything that’s going on – from both parties, perhaps – and wish and hope that when he puts that England shirt on, he can leave all that behind him.” Press Association Liverpool forward Raheem Sterling has been the subject of intense focus all week as his long-term future at the club has been played out in public. Events reached a head on Thursday when Reds officials cancelled a meeting with the player and his representative scheduled for Friday after reading incendiary comments reportedly made by agent Aidy Ward to the London Evening Standard. last_img read more

Zuma named Africa’s best president

first_img12 November 2009South African President Jacob Zuma was named Best African President at the 2009 Africa Consciousness Media Leadership Awards, which honour those who have contributed to the liberation and development of the continent.Speaking at the awards ceremony in Johannesburg on Tuesday, Zuma urged African leaders to keep the promises they had made to their people.“We have pledged to our people that we will strive for the eradication of poverty, disease and conflict. We have pledged to promote trade, investment, economic growth, skills development and stability on the continent.”Zuma called on African leaders to use partnership agreements as instruments to advance the cause of the continent.He was referring to pacts such as African Peer Review Mechanism, established to promote good governance in Africa, and the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (Nepad), which aims to foster economic integration and development.“If we deviate or if we falter, we expect all of you – ordinary citizens, civil society, academics and the media – to sound the warning bells,” Zuma said. “Good leaders heed these warnings and respond constructively. They do not consider themselves to be above their people.”Miriam MakebaZuma was not the only South African recipient of an award. The late Afro-pop legend Miriam Makeba was given the Great Daughter of Africa award for using music to address the challenges faced by Africans during the colonial era.The Pata-Pata songbird, who was exiled for years after she was banned by the apartheid government, travelled the world not only performing her songs but also sending the message to the world about Africans’ challenges.The late First Lady of Nigeria, Stella Obasanjo, was named Best African First Lady of the Year.Zuma said the awards served as a reminder that nothing could be achieved without the confidence, trust and support of fellow Africans.Leadership ‘about service and sacrifice’“A true leader is guided by the needs and the collective wisdom of his or her people. These awards should therefore not be about status or prestige. They should be about service and sacrifice. Let us work together to ensure that they achieve these goals.”African statesman and former Zambian president Kenneth Kaunda also attended Tuesday’s event. He wished South Africa all the best in hosting a successful footall World Cup in 2010.He said it was Africa’s turn to show the world what she was capable of, adding that he was confident that the tournament would be a turning point for Africa’s economic and tourism development.Kaunda urged African leaders to emulate the likes of Nelson Mandela, Jomo Kanyata, Oliver Tambo and Kwame Nkrumah, who fought tirelessly for the liberation and development of the continent.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more

5 New Year’s Resolutions for Caregivers

first_imgIt’s the beginning of a new year! During this time we like to reflect on the passing year and make resolutions for a better year to come in caregiving. Here are five New Year’s resolutions that you should consider when caring for a loved one. 1. Take care of yourselfMake your health and well-being a priority this year. It is important that you take care of yourself, not only so you are better able to care for others but also so that you are able to live a life with less stress. Allow yourself some time each day to be alone, do something during this time that is beneficial for your happiness and health.2. Ask for help when neededSometimes we feel that we should be able to do everything, all the time, all on our own. We can begin to feel that by asking for help we are showing weakness and we are placing a burden on our friends and family. This is not the case. Don’t feel like you have to take on that role alone.3. Accept help when neededSometimes help is offered, and we are not willing to take it. Often times the reason being, that we feel we are the only ones who can do it correctly, or something will go wrong if you are not in control of all aspects. Allow others to help you, although they might not do things exactly the way you would have, having that help alleviates some of your stress and responsibilities.4. Ask questionsDon’t be afraid to ask questions and get clarifications. You are not expected to know or figure out everything on your own. Ask for ideas and guidance from those who are in similar situations, or professionals.5. Use respite care when you need a breakUnderstand that it is normal to want and need a break. Allow yourself that time to step away from caregiving and recuperate. This MFLN-Military Caregiving concentration blog post was published January 8, 2016.last_img read more
