Some 5,000 public school educators could commence receiving electronic vouchers or evouchers, to purchase laptop computers in December, under the ‘Laptop for Teachers’ programme, being developed by e- Learning Jamaica Limited e-Ljam.

Project Manager for the ‘Own Your Own Device’ initiative at e-Ljam, Seymour Rhoden, said the e-vouchers will enable teachers to visit an approved vendor location to purchase a laptop that meets the entity’s minimum specifications.

He said that teachers will receive the evoucher via email or SMS text messages.

Mr. Rhoden informed that the list of teachers slated to benefit under the initiative will be provided by the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Information.
