ACT hands out laptops for home learning

Share Canberra's trusted news:

PUBLIC school students in years 4,5 and 6 will now be provided with laptop computers to ensure home learning during the coronavirus pandemic.

Until now Chromebooks were provided to year 7 students for use through high school and college.

The ACT Government already provides a pool of Chromebooks to public primary schools and the additions units will give individual students what they need to continue their education from home.
