Telkom boosts rural e-learning

Computing

Six Mpumalanga schools facing ICT infrastructure challenges have been given a connectivity boost by the Telkom Foundation’s Connecting Schools project.

Yesterday saw the handover of 303 tablet computers to teachers from the Edward Matyeka Primary School, Nelson Ngubeni Primary School, Nancy Shiba Primary School, Besilindile Primary School, Leornard Ntshutshe Secondary School and DM Motsaosele Secondary School.

Alongside the hardware handover, Telkom says the project provides Internet connectivity and tablet maintenance for two years. “As part of the sponsorship, Telkom is also providing teacher training to enable the educators to navigate the device and access content with ease.”
