Tablets will replace schoolbooks: Minister

“E-learning will enable the students to acquire knowledge from a global platform through which we would be able to develop as a nation,” he said.
“Technology can be the means of turning our population into asset,” the minister said, according to a press release issued from the foreign ministry.
He urged the students to have faith in themselves and added that the teachers should earnestly learn about technology so that they could teach properly.
