Tablets are for train­ing pur­poses and fa­mil­iari­sa­tion only un­til MOU reached

Malta Independent - - NEWS -

The Malta Union of Teach­ers said in a state­ment that it would like to clar­ify that as had pre­vi­ously been agreed on be­tween the MUT and the Min­istry for Ed­u­ca­tion and Em­ploy­ment, the use of tablets by teach­ers and LSAs dur­ing this pe­riod, and un­til there is a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing about it, is lim­ited to train­ing pur­poses and fa­mil­iari­sa­tion only.

The union also notes that it is im­por­tant that all col­leges are aware of this to avoid any is­sues that could af­fect dis­cus­sions on the MOU.

Fur­ther­more, the MUT has asked the MEDE to en­sure that state­ments made to the me­dia are in line with what was agreed upon as well.

No one can ex­pect tablets to be used in class­rooms un­til an MOU is in place and news state­ments and re­ports that tablets will be in all year 4 classes from yes­ter­day are highly mis­lead­ing.

Tablets in fact will start be­ing dis­trib­uted to chil­dren as from De­cem­ber and an in­cre­men­tal use can only be ex­pected from Jan­uary sub­ject to an agreed MOU.
