The Ministry of Energy, Science, and Technology is working to strengthen the security of the Tablets in Schools programme before the next phase is rolled out.

Portfolio Minister, Dr Andrew Wheatley, says the measures include enhancing the capability to track the devices in the event that they are lost or stolen.

There will also be improvements in relation to Internet safety in order to prevent access to inappropriate content online.

Wheatley was speaking to JIS News following Jamalco’s tablets in schools presentation ceremony at the Wembley Centre of Excellence in Hayes, Clarendon earlier his week.
