Haiti - Education : The online teaching platform is operational
Since Friday 24 the Internet platform of Educational Resources and Learning (PRACTIC) of the Ministry of National Education is now operational. This educational tool, designed by the Ministry, should allow the continuation of learning activities, outside the classrooms from preschool to professional through fundamental and secondary. PRATIC intends to support students to avoid any break in learning.

Pierre Josué Agénor Cadet, the Minister of Education, presided over the official launching ceremony of this online teaching platform.

Minister Cadet said he was satisfied with the work accomplished by the technical directorates concerned, who in a very tight agenda have identified and selected the appropriate educational content, then integrate them into this platform which will be continuously fed with interventions by a team experienced teachers.

Aware that not all children have access to the internet and the appropriate IT tools, Cadet said other options are being considered to make it easier for more students to access these educational materials. Thus, in addition to the learning content available on the platform, it is scheduled to broadcast audio-visual courses on the National Television of Haiti (TNH) and other private channels as well as on radio stations in the capital and in the departments, through community radios.

The first training modules in this series are in the validation stage by the technical supervision team, formed on occasion, before making them available on the platform.

In addition, the same content will be saved on USB keys which will be available in the departments and in the technical departments concerned for the benefit of pupils, who may therefore request them from the ministry's offices.

The Ministry also plans to print, on paper, certain content and lesson sheets for the fundamental level and the secondary level as well as for the teacher training colleges, intended for students in order to reach the public who would not have no access to digital.

Minister Cadet took the opportunity to thank all the institutions that have already supported this process, including the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank and UNICEF. He also praised telephone companies, such as Natcom, which is already committed to providing thousands of SIM cards to students for free with special plans and free internet to access the PRATIC Platform.

Invited to present the Digital Platform, Ralphson Pierre, Director of Training and Development, reviewed all of the content.

Maxime Méberas, Director of the Information and Communication Technologies in Education Unit (UTICE), manager of the Platform, listed the procedures for accessing this platform. An user can access the platform free of charge at the address: https://pratic.menfp.gouv.ht Access is also possible via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. The user can use a computer, phone and tablet to connect. In addition, Ralphson Pierre will soon announce an application that will link to the contents of the platform.

If the student has questions about an online course, he can ask them in the space reserved for this purpose. According to the principle of asynchronous interaction, the teacher will react in order to provide the elements of response, said Mesilas.
