Coalition puts $120 million into education tech

Up to $50,000 for each school set to be available for tech upgrades

Opposition leader, Tony Abbott, and Shadow Education Minister, Chris Pyne, have used a joint announcement to promise $120 million for a school technology fund if it wins the Federal Election.

According to Abbott, the Coalition would put the money towards tech needed to improve ‘educational outcomes’ in schools. It also plans to help integrate ICT and multimedia technologies.

Grants will be approved based on applications to the Government and will be directly provided to the relevant schools. Schools will be able to get up to $50,000 for each grant.

“This will avoid state government bureaucracies and help ensure that the money provided makes a difference and that value is obtained where it is needed,” Abbott said.
