Computers for Brussels schools
Brussels-Capital Region will provide 3,100 new computers for 391 primary schools in the third phase of the multimedia plan of minister Brigitte Grouwels, responsible for information technology.
The plan, to be completed by the end of the year, involves 108 Dutch-speaking schools and will cost €4.5 million. “The emphasis will be on opensource software and operating systems,” said Grouwels. “Thanks to a multimedia computer and a digital projector, teachers will be able to use the right tools to make lessons a good deal more interactive.”
