Educosoft, founded by Dr Man M. Sharma, professor of mathematics at Clark Atlanta University in Georgia, United States (US), is designed to empower teachers of mathematics, the sciences and English language to impart knowledge with easy-to-use computer technology via face-to-face or online instruction.
Sharma said the programme has been hailed in the US, Puerto Rico, India, the Middle East, and the Caribbean as a powerful teaching tool which would not replace the teacher but significantly enhance learning in schools in essentially a two-year period. The programme was pioneered in Jamaica (after being endorsed by the Ministry of Education) at the Mico University College, through interactions between Sharma and Mico President Claude Packer. In explaining how the programme works, Sharma, who has 52 years of experience teaching mathematics, told The Gleaner he developed the programme in 1985 with support from the US Department of Education and the IBM Corporation. He said the programme was designed to improve the academic performance of students, especially in mathematics and English language. "All three subjects would be loaded on to portable flash drives, which the teacher would use without depending on the Internet. For science teachers, all the activities that are traditionally taught (by) using chalk and a board and a lab, we are now able to do using virtual labs to achieve the same results," said Sharma. "Some experiments can be done in the classrooms without taking the students into labs." $3,000 for flash drives Sharma, who stated that flash drives would be available to students at a cost of $3,000 annually, explained further that in 2001 when the Internet became widely available, Educo started converting its content and Learning Management System (LMS) for delivery on the web. "Educosoft will replace chalk and talk. It is simple and easy to use and can be customised to suit any curriculum from grade one to grade 12," noted Sharma. I have experienced the programme myself by attending a seminar with Dr Sharma last year." Hugh Cargill, the head of the Mathematics Department at Irwin High, who attended a seminar with Sharma last year to learn about the programme, has been mandated by Bellinfante to implement the programme at Irwin and introduce it to other principals and schools in St James, Hanover and Westmoreland.
