Teachers thronged to the Cape Teaching and Leadership Institute in Kuilsriver today for the long awaited launch of the Teacher Laptop Initiative.
Two and a half years after the promise of laptops for teachers was first made, it has now become a reality for some teachers. An unexpected large crowd pitched up for the event.
Different hardware vendors displayed their products and distributed information to prospective buyers.
300 copies of the book Laptops for Teachers, sponsored by one of the suppliers, were given away to teachers. Many were disappointed when stocks ran out.
The interest in laptops displayed by teachers is heart-warming – it bodes well for e-learning in the Western Cape.
