Intel Teach initiative launched in Sabaragamuwa

Intel EM Limited, in collaboration with the Secondary Education Modernization Project of the Ministry of Education, Sri Lanka, launched the latest phase of the Intel Education initiative in Ratnapura bringing Intel Teach program to the Sabaragamuwa Province.

Education Director, Sabaragamuwa Province, R. Abeysingha, Chief Secretary, Sabaragamuwa Province, P. Kodithuwakku, Director, Secondary Education Modernization Project (SEMP) of the Ministry of Education, Anura Dissanayake, Country Business Manager, Intel EM Limited, Sri Lanka Liaison office, Indika De Zoysa, and Project Manager SEMP Central province Thilak Ekanayake, at the Intel Teach Directors Leadership Technology Forum held recently at the Parakaduwa training centre in Ratnapura.


Adopted in over 40 countries, Intel Teach is aimed at enabling teachers to better exploit the full education potential of the technology age. The program has made tremendous headway in Sri Lanka as well, having already been successfully introduced to the Western, Central and Uva Provinces last year. Over 7,500 teachers have already been trained under this program in the Island.

Country Business Manager, Intel EM Limited, Sri Lanka Liaison office Indika de Zoysa, said, "The benefits of technology have permeated various areas of personal development, but its most manifest and tangible results are seen in education. Intel together with the Ministry of Education believes it is important that Sri Lanka receives these benefits so as to afford our student population the same technological advantage and opportunity for progress reaped by students around the world. We are thankful to the Ministry for all the support they have given us in taking this program to so many parts of the country already, without whom this project would not have been the success it is.'

The Intel Teach in-service program is a professional development program that trains teachers who are already working in schools. This program aims at improving the instructional strategies of teachers and interactive quality of lessons by harnessing a technology-supported learning environment in the classroom.
