CABINET has approved the full roll-out of the Tablets in Schools Programme, in 1,106 educational institutions, and a pilot ‘Bring Your Own Device’ initiative in 25 schools.

Education, Youth and Information Minister Senator Ruel Reid made the disclosure during his back-to-school broadcast on Sunday.

Senator Reid said, too, that the ministry, in collaboration with the Overseas Examinations Commission, delivered on its commitment to enhance the information and communications technology (ICT) capabilities of selected secondary schools across the island.

“This commitment was followed by an investment of $250 million. As of last January, 26 secondary-level schools, which were previously earmarked to benefit under the first tranche of this initiative, started to receive ICT equipment, inclusive of computers, software and security systems,” he said.

He added that, to date, deliveries of 30 computer systems have been made to 26 schools.

“Through all the initiatives, over 6,000 computers and aided devices will be provided to schools at all levels,” Senator Reid said.
