Thousands of school pupils gathered at the Grace Bible Church in Soweto for an address by Gauteng Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi.
The MEC was in Soweto for an imbizo with matric pupils who will be receiving tablets.
Tomorrow marks the second phase of the department’s e-learning initiative that will see paperless classroom systems going online, with pupils in over 300 Gauteng public schools receiving tablets.
The rollout is part of the departments ‘wired for life’ campaign where grade 12 pupils at public schools will receive tablets with unlimited data bundles.
Teachers have also been given laptops and classrooms have been fitted with smart boards for the new e-learning system.
Lesufi says the department is committed to investing in the futures of young South Africans especially those from disadvantaged communities.
“I’m tired of producing learners who will be unemployed. I’m tired that young girls feel that sugar daddies are the future.”
Lesufi told school pupils that as of tomorrow their learning experiences would be transformed.
