Location: MIE, Réduit

The Séminaire Sankoré Océan Indien sur L’Éducation Numérique Libre et Ouverte has closed on 19 December 2013 at 16.00 hrs.  There were some 45 delegates from France, Réunion, Mayotte, Madagascar and Mauritius.  This has been an intensive seminar for all stakeholders in the education sector for the Sankoré system in particular and the use of digital Open and Distance Learning (ODL) educational materials in general.

The training seminar has consisted of plenary sessions where demonstrations were made of the Open Sankoré platform and other free and open platforms such as the “Images Actives” and the “Générateur de contenu Ludo Pédagogique (GLUP)” of the Académie de Versailles in France.  These are examples of open and free platforms to encourage the use of ICT as tools in teaching and learning at all levels.

This training has also in particular focused on the training of the Asian Language supervisors from both the Ministry and MGI on the use of ICT in Asian languages.  There have also been technical training services with the MIE and Ministry technical teams on improving the use of technology in Education.

A presentation session has also been held with the unions operating in the school sectors to present to them the details of the Sankoré project and the importance of the use Open Educational Resources.

Meetings have also been held with the tertiary education sector and the Mauritius Institute of Health (MIH) to showcase to them the importance of the Sankoré platform (called SUP Sankoré) for the Tertiary Education and medical Environment.

Through this séminaire, the Ministry has thus gained considerable experience and additional expertise in the monitoring of the forthcoming expansion of the Sankoré project with additional projectors purchased by the Ministry.  The séminaire has also been useful in guiding the preparations of contents for the Tablet PCs planned for distribution in 2014.  New concepts were also obtained for the preparations of the ESSA innovative learning technology project in 6 pilot primary schools in 2014 as announced in the Budget Speech of November 2013.
