Gauteng MEC for Education, Mr Panyaza Lesufi, recently handed over laptops to  Grade 11 and 12 ICT educators  in Tembisa as  part of Microsoft’s corporate social responsibility in ensuring that the digital divide is narrowed.
GDE is resolute on its commitment in gradually phasing out the archaic method of chalk and duster within the classroom and introducing a paperless classroom in all Gauteng schools.
The Department is working with Mathew Goniwe School of Leadership Governance and Training (MGSLGT) to facilitate and prepare all educators to become familiar with technology and gadgets within the classroom. “All laptops have been loaded with syllabus and textbooks. No teacher will be left out because they were born before technology,” said MEC Lesufi.
 “We are giving the African child a chance to compete with the best in the world; we want to be counted amongst the best. Testimony to this is we launched a school in Soweto’s Braamficherville that has offices for all the school management members. As GDE we are trying to improve infrastructure in schools in order for  teachers to feel comfortable in their work environment,” added MEC Lesufi.
