S African public schools take digital plunge

Resources and staffing still a problem with many schools as government launches rollout of digitisation programme.

    The South African government has started converting some public schools into high-tech learning centres. It is trading books and pens in favour of computer tablets and wi-fi. However, while some schools are benefiting from the government rollout, others do not have libraries or flushing toilets and some are short staffed and underresourced.
