Still taking the tablets
Thailand plans to distribute about 1.7 million tablet computers
to school students and teachers this year. They will be given to both
primary and middle-school students, with 54,000 tablets going to
teachers. The devices remain the property of the schools for three
years, during which time the students can take them home daily, after
which the students own them. 850,000 tablets were distributed last year
and a further seven million are planned for next year. There will be an
on-line tender for tablet suppliers.
