PHILIPSBURG – The island’s biggest communication companies TelEm and UTS are working together to provide high speed internet for the Caribbean Technology in Education Conference beginning this weekend.
However, their mobile subsidiaries TelCell and Chippie will remain in the spirit of competition by offering different top-up and prepaid incentives for participants at this year’s regional conference.
TelCell and Chippie will both be on site at the Asha Stevens Hillside Christian School and NIPA giving away promotional items, and showing the near 1,000 educators to the conference what they have to offer as they did last year, at the first C-TEC conference held at Milton Peters College (MPC) in 2015.
“It’s great to see TelCell and Chippie work together in the name of education, and we at Foresee Foundation are very proud that both companies see the value in what we are doing,” said Alston Lourens of the Foresee Foundation.
C-TEC is a regional technology in education conference for educators put together by the Foresee Foundation. The conference has added a public day on Sunday, October 23, starting at 1:00pm, allowing visitors to see firsthand many of the innovations in education, technology and gamification.
