Azores bet on laptops in schools

RTP Açores, March 1st, 2012

The National Public Procurement Agency will acquire more than a thousand laptops to equip schools of the 1st cycle of basic education in the autonomous region of Azores.

According to RTP ​​Azores, unlike ‘e.escolinha’ and ‘Magellan’ computer, the Regional Secretariat for Education and Training wants the computers to be “part of theschool and not the student,” allowing the school to take possession of the computer and put it in service for the students.

The goal is to reach a ratio of one computer for five students, reducing the current ratio of one computer for seven students in the region, meeting the objectives set out in Strategy 2020.
