Pupils now required to use smartphones, tablets & laptops for learning purposes in schools

Pupils will now be required to use smartphones, tablets and laptops for learning purposes in schools as part of the new education curriculum which came into effect at the beginning of the first term.

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education’s public relations officer Mr Patrick Zumbo said both schools and parents must play a part in the provision of Information Communications Technology (ICT) gadgets which will be strictly for learning and not for calling or WhatsApp. He also said Government has enough capacity to monitor the gadgets and will block some of the social media sites in schools

He said the gadgets would be used by pupils from ECD to A-Level with some schools having already asked parents to buy the gadgets for their children.
