Wireless Internet connectivity has been installed at Maria Regina Girls' Junior Lyceum, Malta meaning that every classroom within the school will have Internet connectivity that may be accessed by students and teachers alike.
The system, which was launched by Permanent Secretary Frans Borg, is a pilot project meant to facilitate a wider use of ICT across the curriculum in secondary schools by strengthening the infrastructure. Speaking during the launch, the Permanent Secretary within the Ministry of Education said that teachers were realising that ICT can bring a change in their teaching methodology and also boost students' motivation. Subjects that were not traditionally linked to ICT are also adopting the use of the technology, he added, as various ICT resources that are already in place can be used to enhance both the teaching and learning experiences. The Department of Technology in Education has invested in piloting this Wireless Internet Connectivity in secondary schools.
