Around 200,000 teachers and pupils in schools in Essex, England are to be issued with laptops as part of a scheme to encourage the use of IT in education and set up the nation's first county-wide wireless network. Pupils can use the laptops in lessons and at home. Teachers could use the wireless network to send resources directly to pupils, and finished work could be sent back to them. As well as improving the efficiency of teaching, the scheme is aimed at helping pupils get to grips with IT at an early age.
