A NEW virtual library will allow students in schools to have access to a wide range of information.
Digicel is currently testing this project in participating schools to support learning and enhancing the learning environment.
The programme allows students and teachers to have instant access to a virtual library that contains more than four million books, video clips, magazines and newspaper articles. Digicel had already given 500 tablets devices to selected schools in Port Moresby, Wabag, Mendi, Kavieng, Wewak and Alotau in the pilot phase of the project.
The tablets which have been fitted with unique, secure SIM cards, allows the tablet to use a dedicated network pathway to connect to the offline library.
Digicel government relations director Gary Seddon acknowledged the Government support in education.
“Our programme can contribute toward the enhancement of standards of education afforded to student,” Seddon said.
“We believe that it is imperative that our students are given the same opportunities as those in the region”
