Our president François Hollande made promises:
Starting September 2016, every highschooler will get a tablet beginning from the 5th grade (typically aged twelve)
Another promise, they will also learn to code.
Great .. but why give them a tablet and not some other device that would allow them to apply what they learnt..
We citizen are told again and again that there is no money, but there is money for buying gadgets..
We are going through the same mistakes that were done years ago in other countries...
2 years ago my son was 3 years old and beginning to go to school, and guess what was in the classroom ? A fracking interactive whiteboard. I have serious doubts about the educational benefits, especially for young childs. Of course teachers weren't even formed..
But, you know, our governments have no money..
