Preparing the digital generation for their digital future
“Today we open the door to the future by launching something that is more than a new subject, and that is far larger in its currency than a new certificate. CAPE Digital Media is the first of the new generation CAPE subjects that CXC is designing to meet head on the challenges of the 21st century,” Dr Didacus Jules, registrar and CEO, Caribbean Examination Council (CXC).
Last July, technology veteran Mark Headley packed his bags and returned home to T&T after spending eight years in Washington, DC. In his time abroad, he compiled an impressive list of consulting, Web design and project management jobs for organisations in the Caribbean, United States, United Kingdom, Europe and Africa. The technology veteran had no idea what his future would hold; all he knew was he wanted to give back.
Today, instead of building Web sites for corporations, Headley is now a secondary school teacher at NorthGate College in St Augustine, taking the next generation of Caribbean content creators through the newly launched CAPE Digital Media syllabus.
