    A massive IT upgrade - to boost internet access for 200 schools

    A massive IT upgrade - to boost internet access for 200 schools


    Education Minister Chris Hipkins says the days of relying on an overhead projector and a photocopier are well and truly gone.

    He says schools use more digital technology every day - and need good wifi, hardware and infrastructure.

    Crown-owned Network for Learning will become schools' internet helpdesk.

    Hipkins says its involvement in the upgrade will make it more planned, better value for money, and faster.
