OTPC tablets provide an educational environment through which the student can access content provided by the teacher. Since the closing of schools, OTPC tablet usage has drastically increased. We are informed of great practices including tablet usage for regular communication and sharing of learning material. To enhance such usage during this period and to facilitate the work of teachers, MEDE will be opening Internet filtering on OTPC tablets as from Monday 30th March at 8am. May we remind all parents that as for any other digital devices, parents should be aware of what their children see and hear on the Internet, who they meet, and what they share about themselves. It is important that you talk with your kids and keep an eye on their activities. For further details on the One Tablet Per Child project visit: https://digital.edu.mt
