As the drive to drag the UK's teaching community into the technological age continues apace, PC vendor Tiny is heralding the Government's Computers for Teachers scheme as a success. In the first four weeks of the scheme, Tiny has sold more than 2,000 discounted PCs to teachers. It works by offering teachers a subsidy of as much as £500 when they buy a PC from a vendor participating in the programme. Tiny plans to extend the range of PCs it is offering through the scheme form the current number of three with the introduction of four new models on 1 March. The Computers for Teachers scheme is part of the Government's National Grid for Learning initiative which aims to improve the use of IT throughout the UK education sector. ® See related items: Stories Blair gov offers half-price PCs to teachers Truants rewarded with £1K notebooks It's Time to give away software Useful links List of approved vendors and other details National Grid for Learning Web site BECTa Web site
