€40 million investment in school digitisation

€40 million investment in school digitisation

The Education Ministry will invest €40 million in digital technologies for teachers and students this year, Education Minister Branislav Groehling (SaS) announced on Tuesday. The first pieces of equipment are due to be delivered to schools in early September. Schools will be able to apply for such assistance via public calls. The minister also announced the introduction of so-called digital coordinators, with between 150 and 200 of them to be available to help teachers and students get ready to work with new technologies. Schools will have to undergo a digital audit. The ministry will process questionnaires, and the ordering of equipment should take place strictly on the basis of school requirements approved by head teachers. In the first wave, priority will be given to students from socially disadvantaged backgrounds or in material need.
