At a presentation Tuesday morning, U.S. based company Polycom said its aim is to ensure the successful implementation of this technology within schools and administrative centers within Trinidad and Tobago. Spearheaded by TSTT, the schools in which video conferencing will be piloted are Matura Secondary, Bon Air High, Vessigny High, St. Stephen’s College, Waterloo Secondary, La Romaine Secondary, St. Francios Girls, Mason Hall Secondary, Scarborough Secondary and Goodwood Secondary. The proposed administrative centers which will have access to video conferencing are the Head Office, the Information and Communication Technology Division, the Rudrinath Capeldeo Learning Resource Centre and the Tobago House of Assembly. The Global Director for Higher Education and Corporate Training at Polycom, Marci Powell, extolled the virtues of video conferencing within the educational system in Trinidad and Tobago saying students will have access to diverse curricula content and experiences via this cutting-edge technology.
