Thai PM officially launches state-initiated education project



Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra officially launched the government-initiated free tablet PC project, aimed at promoting better learning skills among young students.

The official launch of the project occurred recently and featured the distribution of handheld computers to representatives of Grade 1 students at state-run schools.

Under this key educational initiative, more than 800,000 Grade 1 students across the country, including Pattaya, will receive tablet PCs by 2013.

The PM stated that the free tablet PCs will be useful tools that can help Thai students access more knowledge from the internet, in addition to their use of conventional textbooks, and can offer them a level playing field in their studies.

She reiterated that the tablet PC’s are not intended as a free gift, but to offer Thai youth better chances to gain knowledge and learn how to utilize technological tools.

The PM stated that the free tablet PCs have been installed with necessary software to keep students away from illicit content, while suggesting that the project will still need further assessment and cooperation from teachers and parents to maximize the use of the devices.
