Tabs for A/L students from next term – PM
Distribution of tablet computers for GCE A/L students will be implemented from the next school term, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe said.
Ceremonially handing over letters of appointment to volunteer teachers in the North and East yesterday (27), Wickremesinghe said that Sri Lanka will be the first country in South Asia to take this step.
The Prime Minister further said that the Government’s objective is to create a future generation that’s ready to face the challenges of the future by introducing smart classrooms and tabs for Sri Lankan students.
“There are 90,000 vacant jobs in the IT sector at present, and the Government intends to fill that gap with this education reform,” Wickremesinghe added.
