A R17bn project to introduce tablets to government schools in Gauteng will ultimately boost the country's economy, Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Wednesday. "One of the factors constraining economic growth in South Africa is the relative shortage of e-skills," he said at the "big switch on" at Boitumelong secondary School in Tembisa, Johannesburg. The country has adopted a national e-skills plan, with education as a key part of the plan, he said. The Smart Schools project is being launched at seven Gauteng township schools.
