#PRNSarawak : Sarawak teachers get tablets to enhance teaching
The project will start in Sarawak with the distribution of tablets to more than 42,000 teachers in the state. The tablets are preloaded with education and e-paper software developed by Utusan Malaysia newspaper.
“We hope that this will help to increase the creativity of teachers,” Najib said at an event to mark the symbolic distribution of the tablets to teachers in the state.
The Prime Minister said the move would hopefully narrow the divide between teachers and pupils, who have a better grasp of the latest technology.
“This is the first state. All teachers in primary and secondary schools and all teachers serving under the Education Office at district and state level will receive this tablet.
"After Sarawak we will move to the other states and in due course, all primary and secondary school teachers will be equipped with this tablet,” he said.
Najib hoped the move would have a major impact in improving the quality of teaching and learning in the classrooms.
