Tablets in Schools Programme to be extended to teachers' colleges

The Technology Minister Phillip Paulwell says the Tablets in Schools Programme is to be expanded to include all teachers' colleges in a bid to make Information and Communication Technology (ICT) an integral component of the teaching/learning process.

Paulwell says the project which was implemented on a pilot basis in 38 educational institutions, has seen great improvement at the primary level.

Under the one-year pilot project, the tablets were distributed to some 24,000 students and 1,200 teachers.

Paulwell says educators can be assured that their role is not being substituted even as technology may change many functions in the society.
