The free college tablets won’t have access to Facebook, among others
It’s now confirmed! No live updates on Facebook during school hours!
Bad news for college students eligible for the free tablets announced long time back as in this previous article. In a press article today, it has been announced that these free tablets won’t have access to certain web sites without any pedagogical usefulness or relevance, for example Facebook, at least, this is what has been announced. And we can guess that other social networking sites won’t be accessible too.
Initially targeted for distribution among Form 4 students last year, these Android powered tablets will finally be given to the current Form 5 students by the end of this month of March 2014.
Now let’s wait for some more time to give a verdict. Will these devices supplied by Mauritius Telecom altogether with the new pedagogical materials will be up to the expectation to contribute positively in our educational system?
As usual, keep tuned to the blog because believe me, something big is coming up in a few days 🙂
