Two new schemes that will promote the use of technology in classrooms have been launched in the UK this week.
Schools across the UK will receive £30 million worth of IT equipment through a giveaway from Internet service provider Supanet.
Supanet announced that through its 'supaschool' giveaway this year, 10 primary schools will receive £10,000 worth of computer equipment and four secondary schools will receive equipment worth £100,000.
People signing up to Supanet can nominate a school to obtain free PCs. Any school that achieves 29 nominations will be put on the superschool shortlist, while 99 nominations makes a school eligible to claim a free PC.
Channel 4 TV also launched its free interactive service, Homework High (www.homeworkhigh.com) this week, which enables children with access to the Internet at home or school to ask teachers for help with homework problems.
The project, that has received a £250,000 investment from Channel 4, will employ more than 100 teachers to answer questions from schoolchildren online. The service will be available from Monday to Thursday between 4pm and 9pm until May.
Homework High aims to answer 200 questions a night, with children waiting no longer than 20 minutes for a response.
