SmartTerm, an educational technology solutions company, has announced a partnership with the Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines that will result in the digitisation of all public and private primary, secondary, and technical educational institutions across the country.

SmartTerm’s CEO, Ayodele Pompey signed the agreement with Minister of Education Curtis King.

The advanced SmartTerm system will be deployed in 29 secondary schools, 66 primary schools, four technical institutes, and 16 early childhood centres. Each school will be equipped with a dedicated portal, including a unified learning management system  and a school management system, marking what SmartTerm said is the world’s first artificial intelligence-powered national education management information system.

SmartTerm said its technology will revolutionise the educational landscape, reduce teacher workload and enhance the teaching experience with features like the AI multi-model lesson planner, which can generate lesson plans within seconds.

The system also offers functionality for parents to monitor their child’s progress, for students to access differentiated instruction and assessment for a more personalised learning experience, and for principals to efficiently manage their schools.

King expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, saying, “The integration of SmartTerm’s cutting-edge technology into our national educational framework is a transformative move for our country. It promises to enhance the teaching and learning experiences dramatically, improve stakeholder engagement, and enable data-driven instructional decisions.”

Pompey expressed similar sentiments, saying, “This partnership underlines our commitment to revolutionising education through technology. We are proud to provide our comprehensive solution to St. Vincent and the Grenadines, setting a new global benchmark for digitised education systems.”

SmartTerm says it will be supported by Google, which will provide infrastructural support for the solution.

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 development.

“This represents a monumental step forward for education in the Caribbean. The utilisation of AI in education management signifies the dawn of a new era in educational advancement.”
