on: January 04, 2010, 4:31 am
Ernest Jones, the UK's leading high street diamond and watch
retailer, has announced that it is going to support the Memory4Teachers
initiative which has been set up to supply teachers with free memory
sticks to use for storage and that contain essential programmes and
tools for teachers. Ernest Jones is supporting the programme through
direct funding and an affiliate programme.
Umesh Bhudia, Online Media Manager at Signet, Ernest Jones' parent company, said: "We are delighted to support this exciting initiative from Memory4Teachers. We
believe that it is important for a nationwide jewellery retailer to take
responsibility for the communities we are in and give back when we can. We will be
developing more community initiatives like this in the future."
The Memory4Teachers initiative has been developed in association with Local
Education Authorities and Teachers' Unions. The programme is designed to support
teachers in their day-to-day operations with a range of software including a diary,
timetable, lesson plans, calculator and access to numerous educational worksheets to
support all areas of the national curriculum.
The scheme is also supported by recognised educational partners such as the Royal
Society of Chemistry who provide some of the educational content on the memory
sticks for teachers to use and also provide easy access to their own websites
through the sticks.
Security is vital with any data tool used to carry information and each of the
Memory4Teachers memory sticks is password protected and encrypted. This means that
teachers can be assured that the information carried on the memory sticks remains
To get a memory stick, teachers simply have to register on the Memory4Teachers
website and a key will be sent to them in January 2010.
