Northern Ireland’s Education Minister Paul Givan has announced a £3 million investment in digital devices for the region’s schools.

The Department of Education said that around 8,500 new devices are being rolled out to replace computers in post-primary schools across Northern Ireland. 

It is part of the wider Education Information Solutions (EdIS) programme, a digital change initiative that will provide investment of £750 million to transform and modernise digital infrastructure in schools during the next 10 years. 

Givan commented: “Access to quality, up-to-date technology is vital for children and young people. I am confident this £3 million investment in digital devices will provide enhanced learning and teaching experiences for pupils across Northern Ireland.”
