According to the BBC, about 50,000 students from Glasgow will receive free iPads. This was made possible thanks to a seven-year agreement between the city council of Glasgow and the Canadian IT company CGI in the amount of £ 300 million. Under the agreement, each high school and high school student in the new school year will be given an iPad, which will be stored in the school, and younger students will have access to the iPad. It is expected that by 2021, a total of 47,000 iPads will be given to schoolchildren and teachers will receive an additional 4,900 Apple tablets.
It is noted that all iPad for students will be monitored and controlled by the Glasgow City Council, which will be able to remotely block devices. In addition, social networks and inappropriate websites will be blocked on the iPad for students.
“This is Apple’s largest educational initiative in Europe, and I’m very glad that Glasgow has again become a leader in innovative solutions,” said Glasgow adviser Chris Cunningham.
The initiative of the city authorities will also include the installation of equipment for the distribution of Internet via Wi-Fi in each class. This will provide a faster Internet connection in general.
