Jamaica Connects Program is designed to increase collaboration and communication between the teachers of elementary and teachers of younger children, within each respective country, with joint activities to promote literacy. And together, they have connections with international partner schools. Communication and idea sharing will be enhanced through the joint ownership of the Global Exploration and Multicultural Adventures web site. There will be a webmaster for technical support and to develop templates for teacher easy use.

Use of technology in literacy projects will be cost effective, and a convenient mode of communication between teachers, students, and parents,separated by distance, but united in goals for literacy achievement for all.
