Pleckgate High School in Blackburn is one of the first in the country to offer free tablets to all students to improve educational development.

...saves parents or even grandparents having to buy one for them I suppose.

What do others think?

That is amazing. And I suppose at least all the pupils will be on equal footing and not in the position where one has a super duper tablet while another has an inferior model which is what would happen if they had to get their own. Hope they look after them!

Do they come loaded with the school curriculem? Or can the kids download anything at all?Who will police them? I dont profess to know much about "Tablet", but I suppose they must be a good educational tool.
