The Municipality of Vila Real de Santo António began the year 2021 with the provision of new computer material in schools, namely with the installation of several projectors and whiteboards in the 1st cycle rooms.
According to the municipality, the measure includes the placement of projectors and whiteboards in six rooms at the EB 1 school in Monte Gordo and in seven rooms at the EB 1 Caldeira Alexandre, in Vila Real de Santo António.
With the acquisition and assembly of this material, “students and teachers start the second school term with more equipment to support the learning process, allowing the improvement of the quality of teaching”, reinforces the municipality of Vila Real.
This equipping of the classrooms joins the investments in computer equipment already made at the start of the 2020-2021 school year in the basic schools of the municipality and which resulted in the acquisition of a hundred tablets, the installation of two interactive whiteboards and the acquisition of 17 new projectors.
At the same time, an Information Technology (ICT) room was also installed at the Caldeira Alexandre school and 26 new computers were purchased.
Overall, these measures represent a municipal investment of around 40 thousand euros.
