KUANTAN: The government aims to provide each student with a device to facilitate digital learning, says Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

He said despite financial constraints, the government would try to implement the initiative in phases, expected to begin as early as this year.

“A tablet for each student is the aspiration of the Education Ministry. I believe that this new method of learning through devices is inevitable, and tablets should be provided to students even though we know financial constraints are a major factor.

“We are requesting for this to be implemented immediately but in phases. The system is already in place, the teaching methods are there, only the tablets are the constraint.

"So if it can be done in phases starting this year, I think in the next four to five years, the majority (of students) will have them,” he said after officiating the 2024 National Teacher's Day Celebration on Thursday (May 16).

The event was also attended by Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek and Pahang Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail. – Bernama
