Tablets enhance learning

THE opening of a new Digital Learning Centre in Niusawa Secondary School on Taveuni has been hailed as a window of opportunity into the future for the students.

The project is funded by New Zealand Rotary clubs headed by the New Market Club, in association with the Taveuni Rotary Club.

The academic adviser of Auckland University of Technology's Centre for Learning and Teaching, Jennie Swann, said the new Apple tablets at the school had opened up a world of possibilities.

Ms Swann said the tablets would ensure students and teachers knew how to handle them.

"We are currently holding familiarisation workshops with Niusawa students and teachers before they handle their new tablets," she said.

Project co-ordinator Kelsi Cox said the lack of global realisation was like a new form of poverty.

Ms Cox said the development would open up students' knowledge base about the outside world.

"We have installed 35 tablets in the school before we move on to Bucalevu Secondary School," she said.
