BVI pupils backed by Flow

BVI pupils are studying online from home now

British Virgin Islands students will have free access to Flow’s Study programme until June 15.

The telecommunications company has entered in a partnership with the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation, Flow, and One-on-One Educational Services Limited.

The virtual education programme is available to all students between ages 5 and 18 regardless of their network operator and will provide them access to the curriculum used in their schools.

Some of the features include 500 video lessons covering the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) curriculum; access to digital courses for students ranging from kindergarten to eighth grade; and 10 years of past paper solutions for many subjects.

It will also include a question bank and solutions section with more than 40,000 exam style questions and solutions for 35 subjects, and virtual science labs with more than 500 digital laboratory simulations for science subjects and skills gap testing for over 30 subjects.

BVI Minister for Education Dr Natalio Wheatley thanked all parties involved for their donation in allowing students free access to the Flow Study programme.

He said the initiative will come in handy at a time when most students are forced to remain home from the classrooms as a result of measures in place by government to protect against the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This will allow our students to continue their preparations for CSEC and Cape exams through access to the online learning platform and the excellent content which has been generated,” he said.
