Borehamwood , United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 07, 2010 -- H.Samuel, the UK's leading specialty watch and jewellery retailer, has announced that it is joining forces with the Memory4Teachers initiative to help teachers by supplying them with free 2GB memory sticks. The memory sticks are loaded with exciting and useful programmes and information to help teachers in their jobs. All the information is thoroughly researched and in line with teachers needs and the national curriculum. H.Samuel, as part of the Signet group will be supporting the initiative through an affiliate programme and contributions to Memory4Teachers.
Signet Online Media Manager, Umesh Bhudia said, "We are delighted to support Memory4Teachers on this project. As the UK's favourite high street jeweller [http://www.hsamuel.co.uk/webstore/jewellery.do], we consider ourselves to be a family oriented business and are always happy to give something back to the community and plan to do more in the future."
Memory4Teachers is a major new initiative taking place in the UK education sector. The project has been developed in association with Local Education Authorities and Teachers' Unions and is designed to support teachers with their ever-increasing workloads by funding the provision of 750,000 USB memory sticks across the UK.
Each of the memory sticks will contain software that has been developed to assist teachers. The sticks will allow for storage space, but also contain programmes that include a diary, timetable, lesson plans, calculator and access to numerous educational worksheets that support all areas of the national curriculum.
The 2GB memory keys are password protected and encrypted so that even if the devices are stolen, the memory keys are secure and safe. Recognised educational partners such as the Royal Society of Chemistry provide educational content on the sticks for teachers to use and easy access to their own websites through the sticks.
Teachers can register for one of the memory sticks on the Memory4Teachers website now. Only teachers and academic staff can apply and the devices will only be sent to named individuals at confirmed schools. The keys will be sent out from January 2010.
H.Samuel's involvement in this project consists of a partnership with Memory4Teachers, a direct financial donation towards the cost of sending the USB sticks out and developing website and functionality and maintaining security and technology of the updates through direct funding.
