Caribbean Technology & Education Conference (CTEC)
The Caribbean Technology & Education Conference, or CTEC, is the crown jewel of Foresee Foundation’s project lineups. The event provides a unique opportunity for schools, school boards, governments and non-profit organisations in the education field to meet and exchange concepts, programs and projects with one another. Since the event’s inception in 2015, participants have included educators, student teachers, school managers and board officials, ICT Education specialists and other stakeholders from St. Maarten and the surrounding region.
CTEC offers the ability for schools to take advantage of technology-based academic learning concepts that incorporate ideas such as Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), gamification, engineering, 3D printing and more to the every day classroom. On the event’s open house day, students as well as parents are invited to visit the venue and experience the technology on display, including virtual reality, augmented reality, Arduinos and littleBits. As the conference continues to grow, the Foresee Foundation widens its scope to include mini-conferences hosted on St. Maarten’s neighboring islands and the wider Caribbean region.
