A £700,000 investment in new interactive whiteboards for Inverclyde has been unanimously approved. The scheme will see infrastructure in five primaries, three secondaries and two support needs schools upgraded twelve months earlier than planned.
Councillor Stephen McCabe, leader of Inverclyde Council and convener of policy and resources, said: “We know how vital a good education is for our young people so it’s important that as well as having among the best school buildings in Scotland, if not the UK, here in Inverclyde that our pupils and staff also have the most modern equipment available within those establishments to aid their learning and teaching.
“Technology advances at such a rapid pace so I’m delighted that we’ve been able to unanimously agree to fast-forward this phase of the interactive whiteboard refresh programme for the benefit of our staff and young people.
“These whiteboards play a key role in day-to-day learning in classrooms and will be a valuable asset for teachers and students.”
