CREATED APP: Dr Meletha St Hill

Dr Meletha St Hill has created an app to help pupils pursuing Principles of Accounts (POA) to succeed. St Hill’s AccountsApp features an e-textbook, audio-visual tutorial, flashcard games, pocket notes, and printable ledger pages. She described the app as an excellent teaching and revision tool based upon the principles of brain-based learning.

The AccountsApp idea, St Hill said, was a response to the use of modern technology and digital textbooks.

“Because I had the other supplemental material, I decided to put them all together in the app, thus making it a comprehensive tool for class and self-study. AccountsApp for all platforms was created to provide pupils with the tools to study and pass the CSEC exam in Principles of Accounts,” St Hill said any pupil who can read will be able to use the app and pass the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) exam. “The app comprises a textbook that was evaluated by the Curriculum Division and subsequently placed in all school and public libraries.

Further, it includes 28 videos on the syllabus and creative learning strategies, 384 flashcard games, four-volume set of pocket notes with key terms and sample accounts, printable ledger pages, a group forum, and live chat with the author.

THERE are few comfort foods quite like a hot cup of cocoa on a rainy day. We have the ancient Mayan and Aztec civilisations to thank for that.

Thousands of years ago, the Aztecs learned the value of the cacao beans from the Mayans who considered it the fruit of the gods. They removed the beans from the pod, fermented them, laid them out to dry and then the beans were grounded into a paste. Water and chilli pepper were added and the result was a bitter tasting cocoa drink.
