Tablets assist in learning

STUDENTS of a secondary school on Taveuni can now access their learning material through Apple tablets given to them last week.

The students of Niusawa and Bucalevu Secondary schools were given tablets after successful talks between the Taveuni Rotary Club and their overseas partners.

Taveuni Rotary Club executive Geoff Amos said the entire implementation process and the cost of the project in the two schools of Niusawa and Bucalevu Secondary totalled $100,000.

Mr Amos said this included the catering of a New Zealand team on the island doing the installation of the tablets and other supporting equipment.

Niusawa School principal Timoci Bure considered the school fortunate as one of the few around the country to have access to latest technology.

Mr Bure said the 35 tablets would be accessed by the students via the school's new Digital Learning Centre.

"The only schools in the country that have these Apple tablets are private schools like International School in Suva," he said.

"Given our remote location, students can now access their textbook learning material and research through the new tablets.

"It will also create an interactive and innovative method of learning for our students."
