Many schools have outdated computers while some are limited to teach only the theoretical aspects of  IT. The lack of proper tools within education is the reason the Government is pushing education into a new era. With the eLearning Pilot Project, these issues will be addressed, education will thrive and students will be better prepared for their future career. This will also serve as an opportunity for teachers to upgrade their knowledge where needed.
