84 schools with Wi-Fi; internet access scaled up

President Ian Khama says Government continues to upgrade internet access in schools. “This has included the introduction of Wi-Fi and mobile devices to some schools. So far 60 schools have benefitted from the provision of 50 tablets each, while 84 secondary schools now have Wi-Fi footprints. We are further assisting teachers to integrate ICT in the classroom. Through ESP, progress has also been made with respect to provision of additional educational facilities in the form of teachers’ houses and classrooms. A total of 292 teachers’ houses and 32 classrooms are currently being constructed, while more projects will continue to be awarded in the coming financial year,” he said in his State of the Nation Address on Monday.
