In an exciting new development, SmartTerm, a regional leader in educational technology solutions, has entered a groundbreaking partnership with the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The agreement, signed by SmartTerm’s CEO, Ayodele Pompey, and the Honorable Curtis King, Minister of Education and Chairman of the OECS Ministers of Education, will bring SmartTerm’s state-of-the-art technology to all public and private primary, secondary, and technical educational institutions across the country.
This initiative will see the deployment of SmartTerm’s unified Learning Management System (LMS) and School Management System (SMS) across 29 secondary schools, 66 primary schools, 4 Technical Institutes, and 16 Early Childhood Centers (ECC). Each school will be equipped with its own dedicated portal, setting the stage for the world’s first AI-powered National Education Management Information System.
“Our partnership with the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines is a monumental step forward in achieving our mission to revolutionize education through technology,” commented Ayodele Pompey, CEO of SmartTerm. “We’re excited to provide an advanced solution that promises to enhance the teaching and learning experience significantly, improve stakeholder engagement, and enable data-driven instructional and policy decisions.”
The SmartTerm system’s innovative features include an AI multi-model Lesson Planner that will enable teachers to generate lesson plans within seconds. In addition, parents will be able to monitor their children’s progress, students will access differentiated instruction and assessment for a more personalized learning experience, and principals will utilize data-driven tools for efficient school management.
Minister Curtis King commented on the partnership, “We are thrilled to integrate SmartTerm’s cutting-edge technology into our national education framework. This transformative move promises to significantly enhance our country’s teaching and learning experiences and stakeholder engagement.”
Providing infrastructural support for the solution is Google, further strengthening the project’s credibility and promise. Additionally, the project is funded by the UWI Cave Hill – USAID Research Initiative for Supporting Education in the Caribbean (Rise Caribbean).
Professor S. Joel Warrican, Director of the Caribbean Educational Research Centre (CERC) at the University of the West Indies (UWI) Cave Hill Campus, welcomed the announcement. “This partnership signals a new era in educational advancement,” he said. “The utilization of AI in education management is a transformative shift and a testament to the Caribbean’s commitment to progress.”
With this new partnership, SmartTerm continues to advance its mission of enhancing education through innovative technology, setting a global benchmark for digitized education systems.
